Sys is undefined, Type is undefined

Problem
So today I came across a strange error in SharePoint/Project Online.
3 users were not able to see the Project Center, Resource Center or add new items to a document library.
The issue was clearly related to their PC's as other users had the same problem on their PC's and they didn't have the problem on other PC's.
Everybody had the same version of Internet Explorer, Same regional settings and same language installed.

In their IE log they were all receiving the following error.

This didn't tell me much other than it looks like something is broken in IE. Google and Bing gave a lot of results, but all of them were  related to programming and ASP.Net. I could not find much related to SharePoint.

Solution
After a lot of digging and trying tried something that wasn't related to any of the errors but was a pure guess.I tried to disable the ASP.Net Compression.



This immediately solved the problem.

I still don't know what is the root cause, but I guess it is an error in one of the files being updated on the client PC's.

Install DLL in GAC - Windows 2008/2012 (Using Powershell, No GacUtil.exe)

If you want to install a DLL in the GAC and do not have the GACUtil.exe available. Powershell is properly the easiest way to procede.

Before Powershell you would properly just drag the DLL file into the C:\Windows\Assembly but this option is usually not available anymore.

Powershell - Add DLL to GAC So to install a DLL file in the GAC simply execute the below Powershell script. Remember you migth want to run the Powershell prompt as an administrator.
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("System.EnterpriseServices, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a")$publish=New-ObjectSystem.EnterpriseServices.Internal.Publish$publish.GacInstall("c:\temp\MyDllFile.dll")iisreset
The first line adds a reference to the assembly we need to be able to mange the GAC.
The second and third lines retrives the GAC object and publish a new DLL file to it.
The last line resets the Internet Information Services. This is only needed if your DLL file is used in a websi…

Error occurred in deployment step 'Add Solution': Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.

Received this error today when trying to create a SharePoint solution against a newly created site.


My first problem was the site was configured to use a port which was already used by another web site. Therefore the site could not start at all.

In my case both Default Web Site and SharePoint - 2000 was both using port 2000. Changing the port of Default Web Site and I was able to start the site.

However now I still received the same error message. When browsing the site I realized I did not have access to the site.

Giving access to my user and I was able to deploy the solution.

To sum up this post:
 - Check the site can start
 - Check the site can be browsed
 - Check your user have access to the site

SharePoint 2013 : Cannot connect to the targeted site.

On my Contoso environment I was trying to create a sandboxed solution. I have already configured my app domain and app management services. But when I tried to validate the site I got the following error message.
Error

Cannot connect to the targeted site. This error can occur if the specified site is not hosted on the local system. SharePoint solutions work only with locally-installed versions of SharePoint Foundation or SharePoint Server. Remote development is supported only for apps for SharePoint 2013.
If you search around the internet you will find many people suggesting to change your host file from 127.0.0.1 to the actual IP.

Solution However the solution, at least on a Contoso environment, is to type in the actual IP address in the host file.
(the IP 192.168.150.1 is the special IP for Contoso, I have 2 network adapters)
And do not forget to clear/flush the DNS cache. Now the solution can be created and validates.
