Installing CRM 4.0 Best Practices (BP) on CRM 5.0

HI Experts:

I had wanted to ask you if installing BP CRM 4.0 on CRM 5.0 is possible? If so, what are some of the issues related to it. Is it even advisable or should i just walk away from this.

Right now we have test CRM 5.0 system, and we are debating if we should install BP for CRM 4.0 on this. CRM 5.0 BP is due out towards the end of July.

Secondly, is there a way of finding out if Best Practices have been installed on a system (any system) like is there a transaction or something that would let the user know if Best Practices have been installed.

Thirdly, is there a way of unistalling Best Practices from a system. Suppose, we install CRM 4.0 BP on CRM 5.0 and after awhile we decide to uninstall it. Would something like this be possible or is it just going to create a lot of issues in the system.

Any advice would be truly appreciated!

Hi Imran,

I dont have clue for your 1st question.

For ur second question the answer is Go to t-codeSAINT>in the ADD-On/PCS tab you will see something like

"BP-BLCR 400V6 0000 BP-BLCR 400V6 : Best Practices All-in-On"

If u dont see anything like this Best practices are not installed.

For your third question,Deinstalling Best practices is not possible.

The only wayout is restore from backup

Also see How to load best practices data into CRM4.0 installation

It has some info regarding installing Best practices.
