    Error "The feature being activated is a Site Collection scoped feature ... Please activate the following feature before trying again"

    Status: Validated

    ISSUE
    In SharePoint, the following error might occur, even if the Forms feature has been previously activated:

    The feature being activated is a Site Collection scoped feature which has a dependency on a Web Application scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: Nintex Forms 2010 0cdf436f-61b0-43d2-b250-4360f0353b63
    ERROR CODE
    RESOLUTION
    1. Go to: SharePoint Central Administration > Application Management > Manage Web Applications.
    2. Left click the row that your web application is in and from the ribbon select "Manage Features".
    3. Locate the "Nintex Forms 2010" listing and select the "Activate" button. Note this process will trigger an IISRESET so we recommend you plan for a brief outage.
    4. Navigate to: Site Actions > Site Settings and under "Site Collection Features" click "Site Collection Features". Activate the "Nintex Forms 2010 Prerequisites Feature", normally third in the list of Nintex features. A resulting status of "Activated" indicates the problem is fixed.
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    This can occur after a retraction of the "nintexforms2010.wsp" solution package followed by a re-deployment.
