I am having very big trouble with features, my feature has the following site columns content type list tempalte list instance

After fighting a lot, I removed the feature and created them again in Visual Studio. When I did this, then in Sharepoint I have 2 lists on the menu, but when I click on them, there is an exception, the log says:

  1. Failed to determine the setup path of the list schema for feature ID. ... feature.xml

I wanted to try removing everything manually, but when I was trying to delete the content type it says it belongs to an application feature

In my opinion is trying to find the old feature.xml, but that feature does not even exist anymore because I deleted it from visual studio.... – Esteban V Feb 27 '12 at 11:17
