Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Attempted to perform an unauthorized operat

  

Hello All,

I had developed a custom web part in SharePoint 2007 using VS 2005 and VSeWSS 1.2

I have upgraded this custom web part to SharePoint Server 2010 using VS 2010 by using the

"VSeWSS Import Tool For VS 2010" from here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/VSeWSSImport

For this upgrade tool,I referred this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee662217.aspx

The custom web part got imported successfully and the build was also successful.

But its deployment gives me this error: Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.

I am running administrator privileges on my Windows Server 2008 R2.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks.


Regards.

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

  

Guys,

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.

 Cheers,

Calle

I've created a VS2010 sharepoint project and added a feature event receiver to my site definition. When I try to deploy it show me the error bellow:

Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': Provider load failure

  

Hello,

I am using Visual Studio 2010 to create page layouts and preview images(http://blog.beckybertram.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=71). I was successful in creating page layouts but the image was not coming properly.

So I decided to change the path of image and deploy the project (Empty SharePoint project). But this time, I am getting an error
Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': Provider load failure
I am sure there is no relation between changing image path in elements.xml and this error.

I also browsed through and found some related issues, but they are not specific to VS 2010 or SharePoint 2010. And I am apprehensive of implementing them.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb961987(VS.90).aspx

1. The logged in user is site collection admin and local admin
2. Windows Management Instrumentation service is running
3. App pool's identity is configured to the local admin & password has not changed.

Thanks in advance

VS2010 RTM bug?? Error Occurred in deployment step 'Add Solution': Value cannot be null. Parameter

  

I'm getting this error with Visual Studio 2010 (RTM) deploying to SharePoint 2010 (also RTM).

An "Empty SharePoint Solution" project with an OOB "Module" item added. Try to deploy and I get:

Error Occurred in deployment step 'Add Solution': Value cannot be null. Parameter name: s

The account I'm developing with has:

  • Domain Admin
  • Local Admin
  • SharePoint Farm Admin
  • Site Collection Admin
  • SQL "sysadmin"
  • SQL "DBOwner" on all config / content databases
  • UAC is disabled

The WSP package is created successfully, and if I roll it out using STSADM then it works perfectly. For some reason though Visual Studio 2010 thinks that it cannot be deployed!

Any ideas??

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

HOL02 - Developing a List Definition and Event Receiver in Visual Studio 2010
This hands-on lab walks you through building a list definition for SharePoint 2010 in Visual Studio 2010.

So I created the SharePoint List Definition in VS 2010 Beta. On Step 13 (Page 13) i want to Build / Deploy the Solution to the SharePoint 2010 Server. But here comes the Error "Error occured in deplayment step 'Activate Features'". Witch freatures VS2010 has to aktivate on the SharePoint 2010 Server? What can I do to solve the Error.

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

Opening a PowerPoint presentation fails with error "invalid path or file name".

  
When you go to a Document Library and try to open the presentation, PowerPoint opens, but then you get the error "The path or file name for "file URL" is invalid.  Please check that the path and file name are correct."I installed MOSS/WSS SP2 about 2 weeks ago, this happened once or twice before then, but I now know of about a half-dozen presentations that won't open.There is a way to get the file to open, if you hit the drop-down next to the file and select Send To and Download a Copy, you can save or open it from there.If you try browsing to if from within PowerPoint, it won't open either, and will also not open in Explorer View.  We have replaced the file, saved as a different name, etc. with no luck.Using both IE 7 and IE 8 and both XP Pro and Vista Business workstations.Any ideas out there?Thanks,Rusty
