Problems when deploying wsp file

Aug 11, 2010 at 7:19 PM

I tried to deploy the Minicalendar wsp file but had the following problems:

1.  The three installation commands (addsolution, deploysolution, and activatefeature) are slightly in error:  the -allowgacdeployment and -immediate flags can only be used with the deploysolution option, NOT with the addsolution option as shown on the website (took us a little while to figure this one out!).

2. Every time we execute the deploysolution option, it breaks every single sharepoint site on the server!! (every page comes up with a system error - call your site administrator message! :-( ).  Thankfully we were able to execute the retractsolution command and everything started working again.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?  We have successfully deployed other solution files on this server without any problems, but this one is corrupted or otherwise unusable!!

I've the thame problem in WSS V3 with the last version (1.8.3) of Minicalendar.

I must use the V1.8 (.cab) to have a good result.

What is the sharepoint version you use? 2007 or 2010?

The last version of the solution (v1.8.3) is made for SharePoint 2010.
