The language-neutral solution package was not found.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hope I might be able to find some help on this one...


I developed a simple web part which posts HTML form contents to a SharePoint list - on first deploy, it worked fine, using the Web Part project base from VSeWSS 1.1, but after deployment, I noticed I fat fingered a url for redirection, and went back in to change it. Now, on deployment I get the following error:


------ Build started: Project: ContactUsForm, Configuration: Release Any CPU ------

ContactUsForm -> C:\Visual Studio 2005 Projects\ContactUsForm\ContactUsForm\bin\Release\ContactUsForm.dll

------ Deploy started: Project: ContactUsForm, Configuration: Release Any CPU ------

------ Deactivate and uninstall features in old solution ------

------ Retract and delete old solution contactusform.wsp from the SharePoint ------

Retracting solution ...


Server Error: The language-neutral solution package was not found.

========== Build: 1 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 0 skipped ==========

========== Deploy: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========


I've restarted IIS, recycled app pools, etc., but still keep getting this error and am a bit confused as to where to go next. I followed the steps listed in this blo

Error occurred in deployment step 'Retract Solution': The language-neutral solution package was no


I've got the same error as those who opened this thread, but I'm looking for the cause of this error rather than deleting the solution file from SP2010 Server over and over again. 

I was developing and deploying with VS2010 and SP2010 Enterprise Edition just fine for over three month now and out of nothing this error pops up again and again for the same solution. I can't tell what I've changed or which software I might have installed in the meantime, so I can't give any hints what causes the errormessage. Which might be interesting: I installed my SP2010 Enterprise Edition in english and installed the german language pack afterwards. Kind regards, Andreas

How to migrate sharepoint site in 2007 with custom solution package and its content to sharepoint 20

Hi Experts, Recently, my organization is planning for SharePoint 2010 upgrade. We decide to go with Database content migration as it is less impact with down time due to hardware and software requirement (64 bit) in SharePoint 2010. We have a sub-site which contains a lot of customization such as master page, custom list, web parts and a lot of content. There is also a solution was built for that sub-site as well. However, as the time past by there quite a few update and manual creating from power users which concern to me that the solution package that we have does not up to date that can be use for SharePoint 2010 upgrade. I am planning to re-package the solution for the upgrade with all the changes users made for SharePoint 2010. But the question is how do I migrate the content of existing site when we upgrade to 2010? It is also possible that they want to change the sturction of the site when migrate eg: make this new upgrade site as top site collection instead of sub-site. Another concern is what happen after I finish making re-package the solution but during the re-package period users might make more change to the existing site? I would greatly appreciate for any ideas, suggestions as well as best methodology I should take.   Thanks praneth

SSIS 2K5 - Deploy SSIS Package with C# - Error File cannot be found



I made a installer program in C# that deploy ssis package on a SQL server 2005. I have like 50 package that contain only dataflow to update a datawarehouse and create fact tables.

When I try to deploy the packages on the SQL server with the command SaveToDtsServer, I receive an error BUT only on the package calling all the other SSIS package ?? All the other SSIS packages are deployed but the package that call other packages failed to deploy. Whats strange is that when I use the domain controler to deploy the package (I use Impersonation in my C# code) its all working fine, but if I use another user (like the computer admin account), I got the error only on the package calling other packages ???

Can anyone help me on that ? I really don't know whats happening ?

The error that i have is : The file can't be found. But like I said, when using the domain controler user for impersonation, its working ???

Content Editor text format functionality lost after deploying branding solution package


I've got two identical SharePoint 2010 servers.  One is a dev box and one is production.  We've got a branding solution package.  After deploying the package on the production server, when I go into edit a page, the text format functionality in the content editor works fine, i.e. I can change font, font size, font color, etc.  However, when I deploy the solution package on the dev server and then attempt to edit a page, the text format functionality is disabled/broken.  I can utilize bold, underline, or italicize but cannot change font, font color, font size, etc. 

I've copied a site collection from my production site (which works perfectly) over to the dev site with the same results, meaning once on the dev box, the copied site collection no longer has editing functionalilty in the content editor. Permissions are set the same on both boxes and as mentioned, editing works fine until deployment of the solution package on the dev box.   Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Could Visual Studio installed on my Dev box cause this?

"No description found" when adding new connection to package connections collection (2005)


Hi -- This is driving me bananas.  I've got some VB.NET 2005 code that tries to create a new SSIS package programmatically.  Problem is, the code is failing when a connection (of any type) is added to package connections collection.  Here's a code excerpt:

Private connMgr As ConnectionManager

  Public Function AddConnection(ByVal pkg As Package, ByVal connType As String) As ConnectionManager
    <strong>connMgr = pkg.Connections.Add(connType)</strong>
    Return connMgr
  End Function

If I try to pass in the package I'm building with, for example, "OLEDB" as the connection type, the .Add method raises this error:

    Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.DtsRuntimeException: {"No description found"}
    Data: {System.Collecti

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:

How to Localize Windows Forms and Change the Language at Runtime

Localization is the process of customizing your application to a particular language, culture or locale. Visual Studio provides support for localizing Windows Forms with much ease. In this article, we will see how to localize windows forms and give the user the ability to change to his preferred language at runtime.
When you run a localized application, the appearance is determined by two culture values. The UICulture property is used to specify which resource files will be loaded for the form. The Culture property, on the other hand, determines how strings such as dates, numerals, and currency amounts are formatted.
Let us see the steps required to create a localized form. You can then expand this example and adopt the same approach for the rest of the forms in your project
