Error occurred in deployment step Activate Features

If deploying WSP using Visual Studio, you’ll end up with the following error.

Error occurred in deployment step ‘Activate Features’: Feature with Id ‘8a442317-1158-4994-b265-26499b2def57’ is not installed in this farm, and cannot be added to this scope.

Solution:

Just manually created package and deploy

“The specified name is already in use” while activating site feature

Alright, the problem (as stated in subject line) while activating site feature (in my case re-usable workflow) threw this error message.

Solution:
Just opened up SharePoint Manager and look for the problem creating feature in site’s Web Feature list. Right click, Activate. Eureka! 🙂

Hope someone get help from this.
