You should try to run Visual Studio as Administrator. – Alex Lee Mar 3 '14 at 7:25

I actually got this error today. I was using the CKSDEV plug-in for Visual Studio and trying to deploy my dll to the GAC. The project was developed on my machine and I was working on integrating it with a developer's code on another machine.

In this situation, the "Site" property for the project did not reference a site on this particular server. I set the site property to the proper location and the project deployed without issue.

Project Properties Window

Hi Rich, could you give me the step by step, i am new to this SP – Nick Kahn Aug 30 '11 at 13:21
@Abu - sure this is easy once you see it, but tricky the first time. In the Solution Explorer, highlight your project by just clicking on it once. From the View menu, select the Properties Window. In the Properties Window, there is a property for Site URL. Make sure this points to a site that exists on this machine. I'll add a picture to the answer above. – Rich Ross Aug 30 '11 at 14:09

Make sure that the user you are running the Visual Studio with is part of the db_owner group on the sharepoint_admin and sharepoint_config databases in SQL Server.

Check this for more details:
