@Tim MDS = metadata service I wasn't looking in the ULS logs, I meant there was nothing in the content type sync error list.

comment in SharePoint 2010 why should I prefer to update content types in feature receivers rather than CAML
So you are saying changing type and changing content types in any way when used in multiple list definitions then the update will not work properly (via CAML I mean)?

While I appreciate the information here (it is good), it's not really answering the question of why I would prefer one over the other.

comment Updating a content type via feature receiver at the list definition level
Apologies for getting frusterated, I thought the same as your last post and was fiddling around with activation order and I still seem to have the same issue. It just cannot find the content type by any ID I pass it. Also, activating a feature by the ID in the feature manifest (via code) fails - saying no feature can be found.

......ok........ here you go: SPContentType cType = web.ContentTypes[new SPContentTypeId("0x0100CE2744E3BAEA4734B2333D043AA5DD2C")]; ALSO fails... and yes, the content type was created in the site collection I am passing as a parameter.

comment Content type ID management - how do I snag parent ID's with ease
In your post above, you say <Base><new (child)><and so on> In my list definition I have it <base><parent><child>. I created a new content type via VS and it also set up the ID in the format I mentioned I used. Maybe I am misunderstanding what you put forth, or maybe it was a typo?
