Solution import error in CRM 2011

Hi,

Solution import error

Sometimes you may get above error screen, when you try to import the “Solution”.

Reason:-

  1. Let’s assume you have a solution “XYZ.zip” with 3 files (i.e., [Content_Types].xml, Customizations.xml & Solution.xml)
  2. Extract the “XYZ.zip” to “XYZ_new” folder
  3. Do some customization changes (i.e., Add few buttons to Ribbon) to “Customizations.xml”
  4. Save the changes
  5. Zip the “XYZ_new” folder to “XYZ_new.zip”
  6. Try to Import the “XYZ_new.zip” as solution and you would get “Import solution error”

Fix:-

  • Always zip the files from root level not from folder level
    • i.e., When you make changes to solution files (Refer step 3 & 4) don’t zip “XYZ_new” folder, instead follow this step
    • open “XYZ_new” folder and select files (Ctrl + A) and zip the files to “XYZ_new.zip”
    • Import  the zip
    • Get the “Imported successfully” message

Hope it helps 🙂
