comment How do I create a list from a template and create all views with Powershell?
Have you tried it on the same site? Site collection is good. Site is better, for testing purposes.

Is it the same site in the site collection? Could it be a difference in the features active or permissions or lookup lists or something similar?

Have you tried comparing the contents of the file using SaveAsTemplate compared to the GUI file? I think they are both zip files. Also, could you update your code sample to include the save statement? It would also help to describe your custom document library. For example, what are the details of the views that don't reproduce?

What happens when you navigate to the page by manually adding /allitems.aspx after your list name in the address eg user.sharepoint.com/Lists/ListName/AllItems.aspx

Disposing is good. Best practice is to dispose in a try catch or using statement

Glad it worked. Please mark as answer so others will know more easily than reading the comments

comment When does OneDrive for Business change file contents?
Unfortunately, both Box and Microsoft are promoting the comparison. Is it wrong to expect if SharePoint changes the contents of your document the modified date and modified by metadata stay in sync?

comment Get unique values from Parent List in Dropdown List SPServices
I think it's a formatting issue. I notice in Frederik's code he uses a javascript function called escape around the GUIDs. It may be this will help blogs.technet.com/b/sharepointcomic/archive/2008/12/09/…

comment How to delete a Task that is associated to an item and workflow that have been deleted
My next troubleshooting steps would be to first look at all of the events in the ULS occurring just before or after every call to $task.recycle() then, if that doesn't reveal the issue, get out a dissasembler and start walking through the sharepoint code to find the issue.

Have you checked the ULS Logs? There may be additional error information that could help in troubleshooting.

comment How can you move a document with its version history to a new library?
Thanks for the update @thantos. It's possible in the 4+ years since I posted this question that the functionality has been improved. Out of curiosity, what version and patch level did it work for you on? In January 2010, I was likely either using SharePoint 2007 SP2 or SharePoint 2010 RTM.

I'd suggest removing the fields in the datasheet view one by one until you've found the culprit.

comment Data Sheet view issues
The hotfix I referenced above addresses the "An unexpected error has occurred. Changes to your data cannot be saved." issue for SharePoint 2007. It should already be a part of 2010. Are the columns shown in both of your views the same?
