    • Hi Juan 
      I tried running the script but I get the error below: 
      Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerException: Activation of solutions with sandboxed code has been disabled.
         at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientRequest.ProcessResponseStream(Stream responseStream)
         at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientRequest.ProcessResponse()
         at CallSite.Target(Closure , CallSite , Object )
      Please advise if this script will still work on SP online. 
      Thank you 
    • Hi Somar,
      Well, sorry to tell you that the error you are having is expected: if you are trying to actívate a Sandbox solution with code, you will not be able to do it because it's not allowed in SharePoint Online.
  • How to deactivate the wsp file in SP Online?
    1 Posts | Last post September 15, 2017
    • Hi Juan,
      Thanks for the code to Install wsp. I am trying to deactivate the wsp and upload and activate the updated one. I am using UnInstall command to do this but I get the below error:
      "Exception calling "ExecuteQuery" with "0" argument(s): "The design is currently applied. Please apply a different design and retry.""
      Below is the code I am using for UnInstall:
      [Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Publishing.DesignPackage]::UnInstall($ctx, $ctx.Site, $wsp)
      		Write-Host "Uninstall Done"
      I tried using '15' and '16' versions on dlls.
      Can you please let me know the resolution for this or if there is any?

    • I am using CSOM and installing a Sp2013 workflow package using this approach.
      If I use CSOM to attempt to uninstall my package, I get an error that I can only uninstall from a public facing solution.
      Yet I can log into my O365 site, go to app settings and deactivate and then delete the solution.
      Are these commands (deactivate, delete) exposed through CSOM? I can't seem to find them if they are.
    • Yes, they should be...PowerShell is just another way to use CSOM versus using a regular CSOM program / App

      I get this error
      Cannot convert the "Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext" value of type "Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext" to type "Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientRuntimeContext".
    • Hello Megan,
      What version of SharePoint Online CSOM are you using? Apparently, the problema is due to the assemblies you are using

    • The first comment mentions adding uses to a SPO group. which does not seem correct, is that left over from another script?
