SPException: Field type is not installed properly

During my trial to create a custom cascade filtering lookup field, I run into the following exception:
SPException: Field type is not installed properly
There are several possible situations that can cause this error. E.g. using the optional field SPQuery in the fldtype_.xml is not allowed for custom field (see also
However, this was not my issue. I made a little (stupid?) mistake in the xml file. The field FieldTypeClass should show the full class name (including the entire namespace) as well as the full assembly name (I forgot the class-part, as shown in bold). So it should look like this:
<Field Name="FieldTypeClass">Dnm.SP2010.CF.AutoFilteredLookup.AutoFilteredLookupField, Dnm.SP2010.CF.AutoFilteredLookup, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=93ec60d3306981cd</Field>

Urgent passports can be a lifesaver for unexpected travel plans. I had a family emergency that required me to fly abroad within a week, and my passport had expired. I panicked at first, but I called the passport office immediately. They guided me through the process, and I had to make an appointment at a regional office. The key is to be prepared with all the necessary documents - birth certificate, photos, and proof of travel. I paid extra for expedited processing and overnight delivery, and the new Urgent passport arrived just in time. It's a bit nerve-wracking, but it's incredible how quickly they can get you a passport when needed. Just stay organized and stay in touch with the passport office to ensure a smooth experience.
