My Techie Blog Knowledge Creation is Essential to Business, and Communication is Essential to Knowledge Creation
I wanted to install one of the 20  Admin Templates for WSS v3.
I was only interested in the in the HelpDesk Template. So i went and downloaded the help desk templates and added the solution.
When i tried  deploying the solution i get the error:

A feature with ID 75a0fea7-97c5-4487-88e4-70fde8f79b25 has already been installed in this farm
Use the force attribute to explicitly re-install the feature.

So i tried deploying it using the -force option and the error went a way.So i was happy

But anytime i go back and try to use the template to create a help desk site i first get error : the websites blah blah already exists.
And when i try a new name i get :

Feature '75a0fea7-12fe-4cad-a1b2-525fa776c07e' is not installed in this farm, and can not be added to this scope.

After knocking my head on my desk i knew i need to take a look at MSDN and i must be missing something.
Looking a the sharepoint team blog i found a useful instruction thanks guys

And it says before you
install a server admin Application Template you first need to first install the Application Template Core solution, ApplicationTemplateCore.wsp.

So i went back and removed the HelpDesk.wsp added the ApplicationTemplateCore and later added the HelpDesk.wsp back.
And bingo it worked.

But a question for the Sharpoint Team why did you do it that way?

Hi

When you create list this later reference its list template using feature ID the problem is that vsewss change the feature ID when you preform new deployment what happens is that when you uninstall solution and deploy the wsp if you had a list this later will complain that it could not found the list template feature actually this list is referring to the old feature ID the same feature had been deployed with new feature ID, and hence it is not seen by the list instance. to avoid this problem dont activate/deactivate listtemplate feature when you do new deployment all will work fine

Cheers
