  • Ditto the ULS logs, but also, what was the feature? Built in or third party?

  • Thanks for your help guys! I friend helped me solve it. Quite stupid to not think of the GUID that cant contain anything else then "hexadecimal-digits".

The error occurred because of a GUID that had a invalid character. >.<

    I hope you aren't typing a GUID by hand? You know you can use visual studio to generate a GUID?

  • No, I used the GUID tool, but then did do some changes, trying to make a simple system organizing the GUId's.
