Events Manager Not In Drop Box

May 6, 2007 at 8:38 PM
I am looking forward to using this utility however I ran into a problem...

I have installed the solution on my server, enabled it in the central administration and iireset the server. The Events Manager still doesn't appear in the drop box. Any suggestions?

I had similar issues Kevin - for the record for anyone else using Events Manager, you also have to activate it in the 'Site Collection Features' page under 'Site Settings'.

I also have encountered this problem. I did everything that kcornwell did and when i looked under the Site Collection Features I did not see the Event Manager to activate. Any suggestions as to why this would not be showing up under Site Collection Features?

Thanks in Advance,

Try this:

1. run "stsadm -o addsolution -filename GatWeb.SharePoint.EventsManager.wsp"
2. open GatWeb.SharePoint.EventsManager.wsp in TotalCommander (Ctrl+PageDown) or rename it as
3. copy files from GatWebEventsManager directory in the cabinet to "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\GatWebEventsManager\"
4. run "stsadm -o installfeature -name GatWebEventsManager" and "stsadm -o activatefeature -url <fill-in-yours> -name GatWebEventsManager"

The above helped me and I see Events Manager item in list settings menu now.
