I'm encountering a strange behaviour and I'm not sure of the root cause or solution. I have a custom content type that inherits from form with a content type id of: 0x0101010056138C818DD3564C95CA65FF3C468A86. This was created in from the SharePoint
I'm attempting to deploy an inherited content type from as a feature. The feature activates fine but no content type appears in the UI. From that point forward I get the following error in the UI if I attempt to create a child content type of
0x0101010056138C818DD3564C95CA65FF3C468A86. "The local device name is already in use. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070055) " In the logs I see the following error 3 times: Failed to find the parent content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c95ca65ff3c468a86"
for content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c95ca65ff3c468a8601".
At this point I uninstall the feature but still can't delete the original custom content type because it says the content type is in use. Using the SP Manager tool from codeplex shows me that the child content type is still associated with the parent
despite the fact that it never showed up in the UI!
Failed to find the parent content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c95ca65ff3c468a86" for content type ID="ct-1033-0x0101010056138c818dd3564c9
