Importing SharePoint Solution Package (WSP) into Visual Studio 2010

In this article I’m talking about importing WSP as a result of exporting site template into visual studio 2010.

Let us go to our demo steps

1-      Go to site setting -> Save site as template

 

2-Give exported template a name and description, and check Include Content checkbox in case you want to export all site contents

3- Go to site setting,  You will get a link to your “solution gallery”, which has your template.

4-Open visual studio 2010 -> Create New Project  ->Import SharePoint Solution Package

5- Select “Deploy as Farm “ option

6-Select the path of existing solution


7-    After importing this WSP, a wizard will appear with all contents of WSP and give developers to select and deselects items.

8-Visual studio Solution
