Importing managed solution in MS Dynamic CRM Error-A record with these values already exists.

What is the Issue?

When you try to import some managed solution to the MS CRM organization, It shows the error A record with these values already exists. A duplicate record cannot be created. Select one or more unique values and try again.”  and import fails.
When you download the import Log you can find the error as below-

ImportFailError1ImportFailError2

The reason-

This happens due to manually updated the entity in target environment and you try to import the customization on that entity.
This creates the record in CustomControlDefaultConfigBase , due to which MS CRM won’t allow you to insert new entry in database.

Solution-

The solution to import these type of entity customization ,you need to delete the old database entry of your target environment by query-

select * from CustomControlDefaultConfigBase 
where PrimaryEntityTypeCode 
in (select objecttypecode from entity 
where name = Impacted Entity’)
delete from CustomControlDefaultConfigBase 
where PrimaryEntityTypeCode =Impacted Entity ID
