As a developer I take a backup of all my CRM Customization everyday. This was my safe guard against any unintended crashing of CRM Development environment. However as count of my solutions was increasing I found it time consuming to manually selecting each unmanaged solution and them exporting it.

To avoid these repeating steps for each solution I created a small utility to export solution using CRM SDK.

Its very simple utility, opens with Windows Form.

  • “Load Solutions” button will load all Un-managed solutions for give CRM Organization.
  • Clicking “Export Selected Solution” will save.zip files to selected folder location.

 

File name used for saving .zip file is [Solution’s Unique Name]_[Version Number]_[Date Time in dd_MMM_YYYYT-HH_mm format].

For example: Default [v1_12_09_03]_11Feb2012-0206.zip. Having DateTime stamp ensure that each time separate copy is maintained.

 

Thanks Tanguy for making Connection Control available for me, it was great help.
