When I try and deploy an unsigned debug build of SLK to a machine that already has SLK CTP 3 installed on it, I get:

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPSolutionDeploymentJobDefinition (ID db1c8be6-aec1-477e-a191-694397e4e0d6) threw an exception. More information is included below. Error: Cannot add the specified assembly to the global assembly cache: Microsoft.LearningComponents.dll

I have used sn -Vr * to disable signing validation. Any other ideas?

FYI, I've confirmed that I can manually 'gacutil /i' Microsoft.LearningComponents.dll on my developer box.

Hmm, after much installing/retracting/reinstalling something seems to have worked itself out. I think the problem may have been that I needed to fully uninstall the CTP 3 build before I could get my custom debug build installed.

Hey, I even have a debugger attached and am hitting a breakpoint. It's been a good day :-)
