When we started working on sharepoint we faced an issue while installing the package. We have used below command to deploy the solution.
%STSADM% -o deploysolution -name testSharepointSolution.wsp -local -force -url http://mywebapplication/
I encountered the following error:
This solution contains no resources scoped for a Web application and cannot be deployed to a particular Web application.
If you found this “This solution contains no resources scoped for a Web application” error when installing the SharePoint solution, that means as explained by error message you cannot deploy solution on particular web application because this solution contains no resource scoped for web application. So you can’t use SharePoint solution installer or deploy by sharepoint admin. You can use below command
%STSADM% -o deploysolution -name testSharepointSolution.wsp -local -force
You cannot use -url parameter if your solution package does not have an assembly or feature specific elements(elements.xml).
Then why we need to provide the -url as a parameter? Reason is sharepoint need to know which web application web.config it needs to add <SafeControl> attribute.
