In this post we will discuss how to resolve error: Field type 'field name' is not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete this field  which comes in SharePoint 2010.

While I was creating a custom field using Visual studio 2010 for my SharePoint 2010 site, I got the below error:

Field type 'field name' is not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete this field in SharePoint 2010. I google a lot got some solutions as well but nothing worked out for me. Finally When I clearly checked I saw a very silly mistake I have done.

In the fldtypes_*.xml file in the FieldTypeClass I have given a wrong namespace name, which was causing the above error. After that it works out for me.
