Can't activate faceted web search parts

Sep 5, 2008 at 11:00 PM
I activated the Sharepoint Server Search Web Parts with no problem but when I try to activate the Faceted Search Web Parts I get the following error:

A file specified in the modules section of this template already exists.

I don't see any other errors that would point to what the file is. The install seemed to go as expected.
I'm using Sharepoint 3.0

Thanks

Hi Toriel,

Have you previous deployed a version of FacetedSearch?  Also, can you confirm you're using MOSS 2007?

Thanks,

Shaun,
   Thanks for your reply. I'm using the latest download (2.5 Beta) and have not used a previous version of faceted search.
Would it be the DLLs it's talking about? Is there an error log anywhere which would give me more info?
Thanks

Hi Toriel,

Can you confirm that your Elements.xml file in c:\\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\FacetedSearch currently has IgnoreIfAlreadyExists="True" for both File XML elements?

Thanks,

Shaun

Toriel,

You're very welcome.  Please feel free to post feedback and thoughts on the beta version when you have had time to test, these are very useful to us.

Regards,
