    When running stsadm, I get the following error:

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    RadEditorMOSS.wsp: The Solution installation failed.

    I got the same error a while back when trying to install the MS fab 40 templates but was able to get around the issue by installing the core template. Does anyone know what the issue is here?

    Hi Brad,

    This error is pretty generic and it could mean a number of things. First you need to verify that the currently logged in windows user has administrative rights on the machine/SharePoint server. Sometimes changing the date format from the default US English dd/MM/yyyy will produce the same error.

    I suggest that you do a web search about this problem - stsadm addsolution and "Object reference not set to an instance of an object".

    Sincerely,

    I wasn't logged in as the farm admin. That did the trick, thanks!
