Deploy a solution using the developer toolkit


Applies To: Dynamics CRM 2013

To deploy a solution, right-click the CrmPackage project and select Deploy.

The CrmPackage project lets developers add existing managed and unmanaged Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions. This is useful, for example, when your Visual Studio solution builds upon one or more Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions. The deployment order of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions is set by ranking each solution (1 – first, 2 – second, 3 – third and so on).

To add an existing Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution to the CRMPackage project, follow these steps:

  1. In the CRMPackage project, right-click the CrmPackage project node, and then click Add Existing Item.

  2. In the Add Existing Item – CrmPackage dialog box, select the ZIP file of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM solution you want to add.

  3. Right-click the solution in the CRMPackage project and then click Properties on the shortcut menu. From the Properties window you can specify the attributes that will be used to deploy this solution including Build Action and Deploy Order.


If you find that the deploy order you specify is not used, try changing the value to something else and then changing it back to the value that you want.
