Publishing Cache
Unable to connect publishing blob caching. Web.Config is not set up correctly. Cache is not valid. WebId is '1303494830', Url is 'http://vmmossdev:8088/_themes/myTheme/viewheadergrad_mt.gif'.

You may see the above warning in your event log, if the "BlobCache" configsection is declared without been defined... well I did, and I google and could find a single valid explanation.

The Fix: Just add a node in the node like...

<BlobCache location="C:\blobCache" path="\.(gif|jpg|png|css|js)$" maxSize="10" enabled="false" />

Yeah what ever, my life is sad... but it helps us all along the way to an x86 free world.

SharePoint solution Generator - MaxStringContentLength error

The formatter threw an exception while trying to deserialize the message: There was an error while trying to deserialize parameter http://tempuri.org/:GetSiteTemplateExportFilesResult. The InnerException message was 'There was an error deserializing the object of type Microsoft.SharePoint.Tools.SPServiceReference.ExportFilesResponse. The maximum string content length quota (819200) has been exceeded while reading XML data...

The Fix: Go to> Programs(x86)\Microsoft SharePoint Developer Tools 9.0\ssg 1.3\SPSolGen.exe.config

Multiply all the max values by 4 eg: maxStringContentLength="32768" ,maxArrayLength="65536", maxBytesPerRead="16384", maxNameTableCharCount="65536"
