Problems using WSS Extensions for Visual Studio

ERROR: This solution contains two assemblies with the same name, or the SharePoint server already has an assembly with the specified name.” when deploying a solution using the Visual Studio Extensions for SharePoint (VSEWSS) after you have already deployed it to a different site on the same server.

Resolution:

- Remove the solution’s assembly from the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).
- Gacutil –uf assemblyName   (note: no .dll extension is specified)
- Rename or Remove the feature from “Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\
web server extensions\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\FeatureName” 
//FeatureName may not be the same as assembly name –
look in your manifest.xml to find the correct name


ERROR: When trying to deploy a VSEWSS solution using the Visual Studio “Deploy” command you receive the error “Value does not fall within the expected range.”

Resolution:

Remove all projects except the VSEWSS project from the Visual Studio solution
then attempt your deployment again


ERROR: Value does not fall within the expected range (Line 0, Column 0)

Resolution:

- Delete the pkg folder in your solution foler.
- Start building and deploying again
