Recently I was trying to deploy a BDC model to a SharePoint 2013 Farm. Creating the model was quite straight forward as known from the previous version. Then I hit Deploy and the deployment started. But suddenly this error appeared:
This solution for this problem was so easy that it took a few minutes until I figured out what the problem was. The Feature.Template.xml file was not correctly prepared. I simply added
<Properties> <Property Key='SiteUrl' Value='http://portal/' /> </Properties>
And that was it. The installation went without problems. For sure you have to replace ‘http://sharepoint’ with the url of your SharePoint.
