SharePoint Error message Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Invalid field name.{guid}

Somewhere in your feature you have invalid GUID....check that and make it correct. Use VS create GUID option.

There is an attribute Overwrite for field and content-type definition. Add the attribute and make it true. e.g.

<Field ID="guid"
