Error occurred in deployment step 'Retract Solution': The language-neutral solution package was not found.


  • The SharePoint solution builds and when I try to deploy, I get the error.


    Visual Studio 2010.

    Any idea, out there?

    Thank you.

  • Restarted the box and it is working. But don't know what was wrong in the first place.

  • Hi,

    This error is caused by a caching issue in Visual Studio. Restart Visual Studio to address the problem.

  • Hi, Re-opening VS didn't help, here is what did the magic for me.

    From Powershell, delete the solution and redeploy using VS fixed for me.

    (Get-SPSolution solutionname.wsp).Delete().  Solutionname.wsp is the name of the solution that is causing deployment failure.
