All that is required for pcf is v9 unified. It doesn't matter whether online or on prem.
We followed the instruction given in the below article to create a solution.
After the solution creation, we imported the same in our on-premise environment and got the below error.
Our on-premise CRM version:
@rexkenley The solution structure amongst other items needed to support PCF components does not exist in the on-premise version.
Being blunt the latest onpremise version is a variation of the initial 2017 version 9 release - a lot has changed online since then.
Can you please try importing this project.
If you can't import that then I was wrong and disappointed with this. PCF is a very powerful feature that should be available to all d365 users.
I have to remember things here and be careful about other items.
While there is an on-premise version 9 of Dynamics and it does have a (limited) unified interface front end to it that front end dates from well before PCF in it's current form existed - remember that for PCF to work you really do need the 2019 wave 2 release (version 9.1.0000.13228 is what I'm currently running)
The latest on-premise version (Sheldon's is 22.214.171.12434) is based on the April 2018 code base and while I know PCF was being worked on at that time (Hi Paul Mare) what was being discussed then doesn't look much like the current end result.
I wrote and tested all of my pcf controls on Version 1710 (126.96.36.19935) online. *But that could change in the future.
I do hope MS reconsiders this and release a CU that would allow pcf on premise support.
Still the April 2018 code base - it's 9.0.
