Cannot use web part

Feb 20, 2009 at 1:51 PM
I have installed the web part as per the instructions shown and when I do an enum of web parts it is listed but for some reason I am unable to see the web part when I try to add one to a site?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is quite strange what you say. Please tell more details, maybe we can figure it out.

Thanks for the reply -

Okay we installed the web part as per the example shown on the Release Page (stsadm -o addwppack -filename CalendarWebPart.cab -force -globalInstall).

After doing the install we than tried to use the web part but it does not appear in the list of available web parts - when we do an enum via stsadm listing all of the web parts that have been deployed and while it is listed there we cannot see it.  We have not done an iisreset.  It does not show up in Site Collection Features list - shoud it?

Thanks

You must do an iisreset.
It is packaged as a web part package, so you are not seeing it as a feature.

I have exactly the same problem: though iisreset and even a server restart was performed after "the solution was successfully deployed", the web part does not show up in the list of available webparts.

Which category should it be in?

Environment: SP 2010 Server Enterprise.

Any ideas how to debug?

thanks,
