Error installing COE Starter Kit

I am having an issue installing the COE starter kit:

 

The solution file is invalid. The compressed file must contain the following files at its root: solution.xml, customizations.xml, and [Content_Types].xml. Customization files exported from previous versions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 are not supported.

 

Any ideas? Its the latest solution file (have redownloaded twice)

 

Thanks

Hi @mattyn07 

 

What is the name of the file your are importing? Are you importing the whole Zip file that was downloaded? I suspect you might be. Inside of the zip file you download for COE there are a bunch of solution (zip) files. You should be unzipping the parent file and importing the individual solution files in the order that is described in the COE documentation.

If this is not the issue it would be good if you could send the name of the solution you a trying to import.

Potential Wave 1 release issue? We had some "teething" issue on a few Power Apps that we had to amend since we accepted the changes in our test environment

Hi ,

am facing similar issue while importing COE startup kit (CenterofExcellenceCoreComponents) . I have all admin rights & pre-requites are done . Attached my SS. Please help on this. 

Hi @Balacbe ,

 

From your screenshot the error looks like you are importing the parent zip file which the solution zip file is contained in. 

 

What is the exact name of the file that you are importing?

 

It should be similar to the one highlighted in my screenshot below

@mattyn07  where are you importing the solution?

Just in case, if you're trying to import CoE solution in a Dataverse for Teams environment you may experience that issue. You should import the "Teams" version of it.

If that's not the case, have you tried with an earlier version?

 

Hope it helps.
