Web Part Installation Failure

Sep 29, 2008 at 1:19 PM

I've just downloaded the accesschecker web part.
The setup program fails with 'Could not find the specified solution file'AccessCheckerWebPart.wsp''

Any ideas

 The installation tool that is used by the Access Checker Web Part is a separate project here on CodePlex called the 'SharePoint Solution Installer'. Firstly, can you confirm that the file AccessCheckerWebPart.wsp exists in the directory where setup.exe is located? If it is not then re-download the solution zip file.

If you're still having issues using the intallation tool, here are the commands required to install a solution package using STSADM via console.
1. Navigate to the Bin directory of the 12 hive.
2. run the following commands...

stsadm -o retractsolution -name AccessCheckerWebPart.wsp -immediate -allcontenturls
stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs
stsadm -o deletesolution -name AccessCheckerWebPart.wsp -override
stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs
stsadm -o addsolution -filename "\<Path to solution directory>\AccessCheckerWebPart.wsp"
stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs
stsadm -o deploysolution -name AccessCheckerWebPart.wsp -immediate -allcontenturls -allowGacDeployment -force
stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs
