SharePoint Farm Solution Extractor


When you are migrating SharePoint 2007 to 2010 you might realize that you don’t have a copy of all the solution packages you installed on your farm. If that is your case, the SharePoint Farm Solution Extractor is an awesome tool to help you get the current deployed solution packages on your farm:

You can use it with the following parameters to save all deployed packages to the specified folder:

SharePointFarmSolutionExtractor.exe -extractAll e:\FarmSolutions

A few notes:
-the extractAll parameter is case sensitive.
-the folder must exist before you run the command.

It helped me to get all the solution packages from the 2007 environment to install on the 2010 environment.

Hope this helps you as well.
