When I try that I get this now:

This solution contains resources scoped for a Web application and must be deployed to one or more Web applications.

Please let me know how to proceed, thank you!

Can you try to deploy it to a particular site through Central Admin? Check out Solution Management in the Operations tab.

The only way I was able to get this to deploy was to go into the GUI and deploy it from Central Administration, still getting an empty web part though.

Hi Daniel,

It is not complicated to deploy and use the web part.

1. Make sure you are farm admin

2. Make sure you're logged in as Farm admin and local admin (if it is Windows 2008 run cmd with elevated privileges)

3. Make sure you configure profile so that users can have access to the profile information
