Deployment Error: "The solution does not have a WSP file associated with it" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    During deployment of my WSP package from VS.NET I got the following error:

    Error occurred in deployment step 'Add Solution': The solution does not have a WSP file associated with it.

    It's a very wierd error as a few minutes ago everything worked fine.
    I follow a standard procedure of importing templates from SharePoint 2010 to VS.NET:

    1. SharePoint 2010: Save Site as a Template
    2. SharePoint 2010: Save Template on disk as a .WSP file
    3. VS.NET: Create "Import SharePoint Solution Package" project; select my .WSP file
    4. VS.NET: Deploy the package to another web app

    The error shows up during the deployment to another web app (step 4).

    Has anybody experienced similar problems?

  • Thanks Shimin,

    It turned out I could solve it by restarting IIS.
