Solving the 'Activate Features' error.


I was trying to make a new custom ListDefinition that's not based on content type, and when I tried to deploy, it gave the following error:

Error occurred in deployment step 'Activate Features': Cannot complete this action.  line 0 , column 0. 


Turns out you have to remove these lines, in the ListDefinition schema file:

  <ContentTypeRef ID="0x01">
    <Folder TargetName="Item" />
  <ContentTypeRef ID="0x0120" />
