ListDefinition: Invalid field name error after successful deployment

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I deployed a list definition + instance with no deployment errors.

The lists consists of four fields, the title field where the display name is changed, two text fields and one lookup field.

The sample data provided in the elements.xml file are in the list as expected, except the data in the lookup field column, but this is another issue.

When I want to view or edit an item or view the list settings in an error occurs:
Invalid field name. {53c894b1-5f56-438f-9cc0-57f8d00863cb}

The guid is of the renamed title field, which is referenced in a content type and a view.

I renamed the standard fields wirh schema.xml entries:

        <Field ID="{29EEE9D5-7241-403C-B327-1343E7BAE8EC}"
           DisplayName="Anzahl Posten p.a." />
        <Field ID="{662DD119-B60F-400B-8024-3E71AE7640D1}"

Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': A duplicate field name "OrganizationTaxHTFi



Trying to deploy a feature to a Content Type Hub site with three Content types and about 15 fields. I have two managed meta data fields that is part of the base Content Type that I "connect" with the meta data store with a feature receiver. Now, first time I deploy it (from VS 2010) it works fine but if I retract and then to do it again I get the follwing error message,

Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': A duplicate field name "OrganizationTaxHTField1" was found.

(The field name "OrganizationTaxHTField1" is the name of one of the Note fields. My understanding is that you need a corresponding Note field to each Taxonomy Field, or?)

Anyone knows whats wrong and have a solution? To me it looks like the field doesn't gets removed when I retract but I can't find the field. Have checked the UI, the hidden meta data list and in SP Manager.






Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Invalid file name


While deploying a sharepoint solution I'm getting the follwing error:

Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Invalid file name.The file name you specified could not be used.  It may be the name of an existing file or directory, or you may not have permission to access the file.

How to find which file is causing this error?

Linq2Sql error: "Invalid attempt to call Read when reader is closed."


I've read up on this error from other posts and on other sites, but haven't found a solid resolution to the issue yet. My setup is as follows:

I have a RepositoryBase class that fields certain db calls that all repositories need to perform. In one such call, "GetSecurityGroup", it works most of the time, but will seemingly at random throw an exception with the error "Invalid attempt to call Read when reader is closed." All other Repository classes inherit from this one, and they all use the same DataContext object, which I understand isn't thread safe. Since there could be multiple calls to the DataContext object on the same page, perhaps one is using the DataContext when the next tries to do so. I'm not sure. What can I do to ensure this doesn't happen?

XML Task error message hexadecimal invalid character

I am developing a SSIS package to add data from an XML file to an existing SQL Server table.  I have completed several similar projects, but on this XML file I am getting the error from the Data Flow tab between the XML Task and Data Flow Task: Error: 0xC002F304 at XML Task, XML Task: An error occurred with the following error message: "'', hexadecimal value 0x15, is an invalid character.

deployment error on x64 when compiled as x64

I have a service application that I compile as x86, x64, and any CPU.  It installs correctly on x86 using either x86 or any cpu.  It installs correctly on x64 if I compile as x86 or any CPU but if I include the wrong DLL the any CPU version crashes so I have to be careful where the any CPU version is installed.  If I compile the x64 it gives me a BadimageForamtException during install. I would prefer to only have the two installs x64 and x86 which limits the odd errors when using the any CPU version but I need to resolve the BadimageForamtException first. I know the problem is more than likely one of the related DLL is 32 bit only my problem is finding it.  Is there a quick way of determining if a DLL is 32 or 64 bit?  It would be nice if this detail was displayed in the list of properties in VS when you click on the references.

Invalid object error on temp table on a particular environment

Hi, I am using a temp table in my sp. I have written the following tsql before and after using the temp table. IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..##TEMP') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE tempdb..##TEMP; Data will be inserted to the temp table consecutively using a cursor. I use SELECT * INTO tempdb..##TEMP FROM EXEC('query') to fill this temp table for the first time and INSERT INTO tempdb..##TEMP(<fields>) EXEC('query') for the remaining times. The SP is working fine in my laptop, but I am getting an Invalid Object error on this temp table name in the production server. Could anyone tell me the possible causes please? Thanks Sree

Invalid URL error on InfoPath Form Publish on an External List

I am using SP2010 Enterprise on Windows 7 and SPD 2010 & InfoPath 2010 all on the same machine in test.  I create an External List based on a ECT and Click on the 'Design Forms in InfoPath' icon and 'Item' which drops down from it.  That launches InfoPath Designer 2010 & downloads the form from http://<site>/lists/<mylistname>/Item/template.xsn and sets you up in an edit session.  I can make changes on the form but when I publish via File | Publish | External List (Publish Form To An External List) I get a save prompt for local copy & then an error: The following URL is not valid: http://<site>/lists/<mylistname>/Item/template.xsn  (same URL as it started with during the initial download). I took screen shots of the messages to make sure. Some things I have tried & observations: If I change to an internal Custom List the publish step (to list not external of course) works just fine. I also ran this test launching SPD as Administrator with no difference.  I stopped the System Event Notification service per http://serena-yeoh.blogspot.com/2006/08/infopathformurlnotvalid.html  'net stop sens' with no difference Any ideas are welcome. BTW I notice that this step of launching the InfoPath designer does change the form on the list in Sharepoint albeit slightly -

Import Error: Could not process the file Documents/Application Deployment.mht as a Single File Web P

Hi there everyone, Version: Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 with Cumulative Update June 29, 2010 applied. I am having issues importing an exported site into a different domain. I've overcome most of the issues and actually got most of the site to import, however, the import process get's stuck on import a Single File Web Page document from a document library. I believe the original cause of this error is http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980079 The issue I face now is, I already have a large number of .mht files in my document library which I do need to import into the test environment (or that I might need to restore in a DR scenario). Does anyone have any information on either: forcing the import commmand to "on error resume next" (ie. not stop processing when it encounters an error) fixing the already corrupt .mht files in the database easily The error text from the import command is: Error: Could not process the file Documents/Application Deployment.mht as a Single File Web Page document. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.CreateOrUpdateFileAndItem(String bstrUrl, String bstrWebRelativeUrl, Guid& docId, Object varDoc, Int32 docLength, Int32 exists, String bstrCreatedBy, String bstrModifiedBy, Int32 iCreatedByID, Int32 iModifiedByID, Int32 iVersion, Object varTimeCreated, Object varTimeLastModified, Object varProperties, String checkInComment, Int3
