Okay I think I'm missing something when I'm trying to build an Event Receiver. I'm new to this so please excuse my ignorance. But when I try to deploy an Event Receiver I always get a Could not load file or assembly 'TestDeployBlankER' error in ULS. I've created a blank ER to test this.

CODE

namespace TestDeployBlankER.EventReceiver1
{
    /// <summary>
    /// List Item Events
    /// </summary>
    public class EventReceiver1 : SPItemEventReceiver
    {
       /// <summary>
       /// An item is being deleted.
       /// </summary>
       public override void ItemDeleting(SPItemEventProperties properties)
       {
           base.ItemDeleting(properties);
       }


    }
}

ULS

Event manager error: Could not load file or assembly 'TestDeployBlankER, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=842fa6bb627ec365' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Event manager error: Could not load file or assembly 'TestDeployBlankER, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=842fa6bb627ec365' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

I always get these when two errors one right after the other when I try to debug my solution. What am I missing here?

UPDATE

I also see these errors when I just try and do a deploy.

Solution Deployment : Looking for 'ReceiverAssembly' attribute in manifest root node for solution 'TestDeployBlankER.wsp'.

Solution Deployment : Looking for 'ReceiverClass' attribute in manifest root node for solution 'TestDeployBlankER.wsp'.

Solution Deployment : Missing one or more of the following attributes from the root node in solution TestDeployBlankER.wsp: assembly '', type ''.

I found this article talking about the feature Activate, Deactivation, Installation, Uninstalling, and Upgrading events. Am I supposed to implement soemthing for these events even on a simple ER?

  • You shouldn't need to implement anything for those. I did see a weird reference somewhere the if the base solution was an empty sharepoint project and not an event receiver project, it didn't work. What base project did you start from? – Eric Alexander Feb 24 '15 at 20:46
  • I used the event receiver template. – ExceptionLimeCat Feb 24 '15 at 20:47
  • There is a server in the farm that is not configured. I think I read somewhere that could cause an issue. Could that be a culprit> – ExceptionLimeCat Feb 24 '15 at 20:53
  • Looks like any solution uploaded to this farm is failing. Something must've gotten changed when we migrated data to 2013. – ExceptionLimeCat Feb 24 '15 at 22:05
