Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

This example imports a package defined by SampleCRMPackage.dll, which is available in the c:\CRM\SDK\Tools\PackageDeployer directory.

The -Verbose parameter at the end of the command is optional, and is used to display a detailed log of the activities performed during the package deployment process. For the –CrmConnection parameter, we pass the $CRMConn variable that stores the CRM connection information. We used the Get-CrmConnection cmdlet earlier to store the CRM connection information in the $CRMConn variable.


PS C:\>Import-CrmPackage -CrmConnection $CRMConn -PackageDirectory c:\CRM\SDK\Tools\PackageDeployer -PackageName SampleCRMPackage.dll -UnpackFilesDirectory c:\UnpackedFiles -Verbose
