I have nothing in this folder. Moreover I tried to make a search in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\ but I could not find any files with wsp extension. Oleg

Hi, First, try to search your PROD server hard drives for the solution wsp file. Then, copy the wsp file to your DEV environment and deploy it. If you cannot file the wsp file then, I'm afraid you have to extract it programatically from your PROD SharePoint solutions store. For more details for extracting a solution file, please read my post on the subject : http://spbyexamples.blogspot.com/2009/07/batch-solution-deployment-between-farms.html Hope this helps.

Hence his marking it as an answer must have been a mistake and so I removed the mark.

Mike, The link that you provided is "Simple way to extract solution and feature details from a SharePoint solution package (wsp)". But I have a reverse situation I do not have a wsp file I have solutions already installed on SharePoint Web Farm. I need to get those solutions in wsp. Oleg

Hi Styxol,Links provide by Mike and Djamel will allow you to extract SharePoint solution package (wsp) from the MOSS database. Sharepoint store WSP in the configuration database. There is no way to download Sharepoint solution, all you can do is to extract them by code.Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that it's exactly what you want. Hope that help,Mario Mon Blog/My Blog (in french) LinkedIn

Sorry for that. I am not very familiar with VB. I converted the code on C# and I could extract solutions from SharePoint into WSP files. I really appreciate your help. Oleg

Oleg, could you post the C# code. It would really help me out as I am stuck as well. Somehow our custom wsps have been lost and I need to migrate the wsps to a new farm from our original one. Thanks for sharing the knowledge! -AndyAndy A.

This tool allows to verify all wsp files installed on SharePoint 2007 Farm. And it allows to download the wsp files from SharePoint Database to hard disk. http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/SPSolutionExtractor Piero
