WSS 3.0 deploy fail - Absolute Path information is required

Aug 17, 2010 at 11:08 AM


Im still struggling to get this to deploy on our SBS2003 server running WSS 3.0. This is going on a site http://ourserver:65498/sites/intranet

I can add the application ok, but when it comes to deploy i get the following error in Central Administration


Name: mjb.wss.googlemaps.wsp
Type: Core Solution
Contains Web Application Resource: Yes
Contains Global Assembly: Yes
Contains Code Access Security Policy: No
Deployment Server Type: Front-end Web server
Deployment Status: Error
Deployed To: None
Last Operation Result: Some of the files failed to copy during deployment of the solution.
Last Operation Time: 8/17/2010 10:49 AM


And this error in event log:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3
Event Category: Timer
Event ID: 6759
Date:  17/08/2010
Time:  10:42:03
User:  N/A
The Execute method of job definition "SPSolutionDeploymentJobDefinition" (id "f581e3e3-e0be-4525-a3d3-11108591632a") threw an exception. Absolute path information is required.

Reading around the internet, some suggest making sure applicationtemplatecore.wsp is installed - ive done this and it is deployed fine.

Can anyone suggest where im going wrong?
