Issue

When deploying a K2 P&D package, on the deployment screen, an error is shown that a K2 Event receiver cannot be deployed

Symptoms

Troubleshooting Steps

This issue can occur when migrating a SharePoint site from one environment to another and the old K2 Event receivers are also moved across.
