can we Export Managed Solutions Using C# ExportSolutionRequest in Dynamics 365 Soutions

Posted on by 2
I am currently working on an XrmToolBox plugin project where I need to export both managed and unmanaged solutions from Dynamics 365. I have written the following code to export solutions:
Code : 
////////////////////////////////////////
 
         public byte[] RetrieveSolutionFile(IOrganizationService service, string solutionUniqueName)
        {
            ExportSolutionRequest exportRequest = new ExportSolutionRequest
            {
                SolutionName = solutionUniqueName,
                Managed = true,
                //ExportAutoNumberingSettings = true,
                //ExportCalendarSettings = true,
                //ExportCustomizationSettings = true,
                //ExportEmailTrackingSettings = true,
                //ExportExternalApplications = true,
                //ExportGeneralSettings = true,
                //ExportMarketingSettings = true,
                //ExportOutlookSynchronizationSettings = true,
                //ExportRelationshipRoles = true,
                //ExportSales = true
            };
            ExportSolutionResponse exportResponse = (ExportSolutionResponse)service.Execute(exportRequest);
            byte[] exportXml = exportResponse.ExportSolutionFile;
            return exportXml;
        }
/////////////////////////////////////
 
The code works perfectly for exporting unmanaged solutions when I set Managed = false. However, I encounter an error when attempting to export managed solutions with Managed = true. The error message is:
 
//////
 
 
QUESTIONS:
  • Is there a way to programmatically export managed solutions from Dynamics 365?
  • Are there any workarounds or best practices for exporting managed solutions.

    managed solutions cannot be exported, that's by design
