Fixed – There was an error calculating dependency for this component. Missing component id error while trying to import a solution in Dynamics 365


We got the below error while trying to import the solution.

The error indicates that either the component with the specified GUID in the error message is either missing in the solution or is missing in the target environment.

Search for the GUID either in the customization.xml or solutions.xml to find the component.

Add the missing component in the solution and try the import again.

Or remove the dependency to that component from the source solution.

In our case, it was the Quick View Form referred to in one of the entity’s form but not included in the solution. We added the Quick View Form in our solution and tried the import which worked.

We could have also removed the quick view form from the entity’s form (if the component was not needed) and tried the import.

Hope it helps..
