Importing solution with Environment Variables: Warning: One or more components in the solution already exist in your system as unmanaged components....

I am working in only 1 environment. I have a power app that connects a gallery to a record of a SharePoint site/library.  I need to use the app, or a renamed copy of the app/solution, so that the gallery connects to a record of an alternate SharePoint site/library.    Since I cannot use a variable to point to data sources,  I was hoping to leverage the new functionality of environment variables. 

 

My plan would be:

1.  Create a solution and add the PowerApp to it.

2.  Enable the Automatically create environment variables when adding data sources in the app settings.

3.  Remove, Re-Add the data source so that an environment variable is created.

4.  Save App and Export Solution.

5.  Import solution to the same environment and direct the data source to a and alternate SharePoint site/library.

6.  Rename solution and import to same environment and direct the data source to a second alternate site/library.,

 

The issue I'm having are with step 5.  Since there is already an App in the environment I cannot import a solution with the same app.  This is the warning I get:

 

Importing this solution will convert the components into managed components for this solution. Warning: Any customizations that your organization has made to these

 

Is there a way to rename the app or solution so that I can import it multiples time and connect to different data sources?  Could I just save a copy of the app and create a new solution for each saved copy?  Or 1 solution with each App?
