Is there a workaround for having to deinstall MSCRM on our demonstration images in order to run the Redeployment Wizard? When I bring over the Redeployment Wizard onto the MSCRM VPC image and try to run it I recieve the "Microsoft CRM Redeployment Wizard must be run before Microsoft CRM is installed". Hoping that the partners don't have to deinstall and reinstall MSCRM from the VPCs that are provided in order to install these vertical template.

Hi Robert,

You're correct. The CRM Redeployment Wizard tool can only be run when there is NO CRM installed.

The CRM Redeployment Wizard is needed because it needs to convert all the existing user logins according to your current Active Directory user logins list.

Another workaround for this issue, you can import all the customization files and workflow files directly, but you will not get any CRM Manufacturing Vertical Template specific data. In order to get the data imported, maybe you can use Data Migration Framework to migrate the Manufacturing data to your data.

Hopefully this helps,
