Sometimes exporting and importing solutions between instances in CRM can be trickier than expected.
One such instance of this can occur when using Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 On Premise – build 22.214.171.124 in particular. You may find that when you attempt to import a solution that has been exported from your sandbox instance that the import fails and you receive and error similar to; Error is 0x80040217 processtrigger With Id = [GUID] Does Not Exist
Basically there are a few different issues that may be fixed by applying subsequent roll-up patches, but if you are stuck for the time being you could solve the problem by opening the Business Rules in your source solution and setting the “scope” to “All Forms”.
- Open your solution
- Open the entity with affected Business Rules
- Deactivate the Business Rules and change the scope to All Forms
- Re-activate the Business Rules
- Publish you solution
- Export the solution
- Import the solution into your target instance
Hope this helps!
