Failed to create receiver object from assembly sharepoint 2010 error while deploying WSP

The problem was because the timer service cached the previous dlls. You have to restart timer service on all servers in the farm before starting any new deployment.

Sharepoint 2010
 net stop SPTimerV4

  net start SPTimerV4

Sharepoint 2007
 net stop SPTimerV3
 net start SPTimerV3


  1. Restarting timer service did not work for me, i still received the error; but then i was able to deploy the solution using -force after the first failed attempt.. which means it must be caching somewhere.

    1. Timer job assemblies get cached so every time we deploy we need to change the assembly version or restart the timer service to see latest code changes.


SharePoint document metadata not updating

I faced a weird issue today, Metadata for document which has lookup column was not updating even after saving the item. There was no erro...
