Export and Import Solution with PCF out of the CRM

After we imported a solution from our developer to a Dev-System, where the PCF worked perfectly we wanted to exprot a Solution with the PCF and import it into a Quality-System.

Where the Error-Message:
"Cannot add a Root Component PCF.Scan of type 66 because it is not in the target system." has occured.

To fix this Problem we imported the original solution of our developer and not imported the exported one form the CRM. It seems that the CRM-Solution-Export is not exporting all of the needed components. Maybe this is bug here.

The error also occurs, when the PCF is alread in the target system and you want to add the form, where the PCF is implemented.

Re: Export and Import Solution with PCF out of the CRM

Do we have anyone who can speak to this issue? I am experiencing it also. I am just trying to upload a new version of my PCF control and receiving this issue. 

 

Do I have to remove all depedencies of this control in order for the solution to upload? This seems like a major issue.

Re: Export and Import Solution with PCF out of the CRM

The documentation seems to imply that the preferred ALM for a PCF component is to build a managed solution from your code rather than export after deploying as unmanaged:

 

msbuild /t:build /restore /p:configuration=Release

This will build a managed solution that you can import into your target envrionments, it will also ensure that your code is build using production mode so that it is optimised.

I wonder if using unmanaged solutions for PCF components is really a bad practice. 
Just consider delivering solutions to Market Place without dependencies on another solutions: there would have been an option to import PCF components unmanaged and then build a managed solution with the PCF component inside.
