Custom page provider and license



I need to use custom page provider in my site, based on EpiServer cms (6 R2).

I've created simple page provider by this sample:

On my developer machine (license <LicenseType>12-Month Partner Developer License</LicenseType> - part of data from License.config file) all ok. But on server i've see error (license <LicenseType>12-Month Customer Developer License</LicenseType>). After this i've upgraded my licence (license <LicenseType>Customer Developer Enterprise Master</LicenseType> <Enterprise>True</Enterprise>), but again saw this error.


Error message:

Server Error in '/' Application.

An Enterprise license is required in order to add a PageProvider.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Go to admin mode and look at your config in site information page to see if it's really is a enterprise license you got installed.

Hi. Any ideas?

I have the same problem!

Did you manage to solve it?

Hey Ievgen,

So did you end up using the page provider at all or did you just find another solution?

We actually ended up using the page provider and cut this feature off.
