authorizedType not created using Setup

May 6, 2008 at 4:03 PM
I have noticed that the setup doesnot add the authorizedType key upon deployment. I have a patche that uses the SharePoint API to modifiy the Web.config and add this entry.
If I upload will you integrate it with the next deployment ?

Deploying the soluton does NOT activate the feature automatically.

You need to go to the Web Application Features option in Central Administration and enable the feature.  This then adds the authorizedType entry to the web.config from within the Feature Receiver.

It's very confusing that installing the solution makes the Activity visible (from the .ACTIONS file) but the assemblies are not available to run.

I think the developer could do with tidying this up a bit in the solution for a future version.

Hope this helps,
