can't find solution to activate

Mar 25, 2011 at 1:30 AM

I added the solution via stsadm.exe. The message indicated it successfully loaded. However, I don't see it in the application pool to activate. Also, I don't see it in the GAC. I tried to add it again and it indicate the solution was already loaded. Any insight? thanks,

Hi Eric,

After you add a solution to a SharePoint environment, you need to then deploy it, before the features within are available to be Activated.  Steps are:

  1. Add the solution with stsadm -o addsolution -filename <path to wsp file> (note, you can also do this in Central Admin)
  2. Deploy the solution with stsadm -o deploysolution -name SPDWorkflowStringActions.wsp -immediate -allowgacdeployment (note, you can also do this in Central Admin)
  3. Activate the web application feature via Central Admin
