"Cannot complete this action" when provisioning a ListInstance from a ListTemplate

Mar 23, 2010 at 1:07 PM

When I try to provision a new list instance, from a template which I've previously extracted with SPSource (latest version) I get the following exception:

Cannot complete this action.

Please try again.   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.UpdateField(String bstrUrl, String bstrListName, String bstrXML)
   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.UpdateField(String bstrUrl, String bstrListName, String bstrXML)

If I create a new standard Custom List and add the content type to it, it works fine.

Any thoughts?

What type of list had you previously created in SPSource and deployed?

I am also having this same error. I ´ve previously created a custom list and after I deploy it, this error appears every time I try to change something in the deployed list.

Solved using SPSource v1.1.1.0

Any idea what the root cause was?  ...what is different in the new list definition vs. the old, for example?
