I have an App avaiable in AppExchange which contains "page layout" for contact and account also as one its component.

When I install this app in Other Edition the page layout is getting migrated but If I install the same App in Professional Edition then the Page layout is not getting migrated.

As per my understanding there is only one by-default page layout for each object in professional Edition and user can not create a new page layout from the UI.

Please let me know how to migrate the page Layout to professional Edition org via installing an App from AppExchange

You can't, at least not without Professional Edition Record Types (upgrade option for Professional Edition).

It's not a feature you can add to your app, it's a feature the client would have to pay for. You can't even metadata changes into the org without them getting the API, because metadata API doesn't support client Id values.

  • thanks for the reply, can I update the existing pageLayout using metadata API and PostInstall Script. Commented Jul 30, 2014 at 3:47
