Hi,

I am trying to start the Server #publishing Infrastructure in the Site Collection Features but I am getting the error below:

Error
Failed to instantiate file "ContentQueryMain.xsl" from module "XSLStyleSheets": The specified list does not exist.

Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

Thanks

From this link here:  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010general/thread/0e7d0e52-c798-4d4d-a552-505e362c7b6a#0e7d0e52-c798-4d4d-a552-505e362c7b6a
First, please go to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\PublishingResources, check whether the contentquerymain.xsl existed.
 
Second, open your SharePoint site, click all site content, then click style library, then click XSL style sheets, make sure contentquerymain.xsl exists.
 
If the contentquerymain.xsl file doesn’t exist, try to run setup to repair the files that are needed for the specified product. Running Setup in repair mode only affects the program files and does not repair your server configuration or any sites.
 
For more information about how to run setup with repair, please refer to the following article:

I have tried the above but to no avail. It does not bring the style library back.

Have you tried using stsadm to deactivate the feature, then uninstall the feature, then install the feature, then activate?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

First open up the Deactivate and the Activate file and change the %sitecollection% to the name of your site collection.
Then change the file extension to .cmd
Put these on your sharepoint server and run them using the sharepoint system account logon.
Run them in the following order (important):
  1. PublishingResourcesDeactivateFeature
  2. PublishingResourcesUninstallFeature
  3. PublishingResourcesInstallFeature
  4. PublishingResourcesActivateFeature
PublishingResourcesDeactivateFea.txt
PublishingResourcesUninstalllFea.txt
PublishingResourcesInstallFeatur.txt
PublishingResourcesActivateFeatu.txt

There is no need to reactivate features.

The actual reason is: someone removed 'Style Library' library. Please recreate it with original name. This is a regular library:

- go to the site actions
- choose 'New Document Library'
- enter "Style Library"
- confirm

Publishing Infrastructure should activate without problems.

Library does not need to have any files. Make sure that you created valid library in the root site (go to the "View All Site Content" and post screenshot).

The error he's getting states that it's trying to "instantiate file "ContentQueryMain.xsl"" from the library ....the library needs the files.  Which running the .cmd files should create these.

There are two possibilities:

- you did not add the library to the root web (it exists in some subweb)
- make sure that url of this library is "Style Library" (NOT e.g. "StyleLibrary" or "Style Library1")

The second one is very likely. If so - use SharePoint Designer to change the URL of the library (no way to do it from UI). It may exist folder named "Style Library" - remove it first (ensure its empty).

They are the .txt files I attached to the message above from 09/02/10.  When you download them follow the instructions in that posting.  Changing the file extension to .cmd instead of .txt will make them .cmd files (ee doesn't allow attaching .cmd files - that's why I had to attach them that way).
