SharePoint Missing Module when activating a feature

In the last weeks we resolved an error, which might be interesting for others as well. We got this Error message, that there was an error for a file from a specific module and that the list was not available.


It came up at several features, if we tried to activate them. It was always a list which were used by the publishing features. The publishing feature were not activated, but could not be activated using the UI.

Therefore we used stsadm, to resolve it.

[sourcecode language=”csharp”]

stsadm -o deactivatefeature -id f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa -url “http://server/sites/sitecollection” -force

stsadm -o activatefeature -id f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa -url “http://server/sites/sitecollection” -force


After that it worked well again. We assume that it had to problems with the publishing features.
