    Ah - if you had a previous version of the solution on your environment - you would end up with an assembly version mis-match to what is registered as safe in your web.config. Remember - that your web.config reflects the internal unique identifier in the assembly dll. This does change between versions.

    With a copy of the webpart already on a page - you would therefore get this error as the webpart on the page (old version) would not match the assembly.

    Glad you are all sorted - sorry I didnt see the problem sooner to save you some head scratching.

    Finally got it working after removing all instances of Sharepoint Forums, then continuing from step 2 above - don't know what happened, but it seemed to work in the end. Thanks for posting this solution, it's been invaluable!

    That's awesome - I've been banging my head up against a wall trying to get this installed for the last couple of days. Just one problem - when I attempt to add the web part, I get the error "Unable to add selected web part(s). Sharepoint Forums 1.2.0.0: The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT:0x80131040).

    Any idea what this means and how I can resolve it?

    Thanks in advance,

    Cheers Stuart much appreciated. It's gained quite a lot of momentum at work as the "wrong" people have seen the "Ease of control" and other similar blurbs being pushed out by MS. Good to know it's not all hot air!! We've been a Symantec house for a long long time now.. (think it's coming up to 9yrs now!) But I have to admit I DO NOT like endpoint (v11) and when I trialed the server components it was the worst hog I've seen in a long time as it's now Java based yuck!.. Ho hum change is good (I hope!)

    I will check the logs for you and see if I can find something BIG!! LOL. I dont think there has been anything major. Easy to manage tho, and v2 looks like it will be really good too.

    2. Deployment. We used to have AVG, thankfully a quick google showed up that Kaspersky had an AVG removal tool. It does what it says on the tin - silently removes AVG. Used that and pushed Forefront at the same time using WSUS. You can use GPSI though.
    Thanks for that Stuart, I'm actually NHS based IT (unfortunately no equivalent of EduGeek for us! ) but I've got to look at forefront due to NHS licensing. Have you had it find any real nastys yet? Or any reports of it not finding stuff?

    I can also confirm this works perfect much easier this way. and took minutes to install and nothing can get broken.

    Looks much better than the normal "discussion boards"

    How does Forefront compare against Avast/AVG for detection and cleanup?.. I've got to look at it soon to replace our Norton setup so probably an even worse pain for removal there than I'd like to think about now.. Was there any issues removing what you had ? How did you work the roll out, removal first then push out through wsus or have the 2 running together?

    I'm going to be doing this at our school over the summer. Changing to a subnetted system ate a significant number of IP addresses.

    Got about 13 hardware servers to re-address, and half a dozen virtual ones, 20 or so printers, a voip phone system (with 45 extensions), network scanners, switches, electronic display system etc...

    Should be fun.

    Sadly not on the 2600n's. The other main printer is the OKI B6200. Again the lock option is there - but it is so much easier to have it so that if they fiddle, it cant really stuff anything up. Also a useful list to have in DHCP so we can quickly see if machines are up or down.

    What type of printers are they? i know with most HP's you can lock out almost everything so people can't touch/play with the settings.

    Not directly, but in RPM, what you can do is set up a "dummy " server queue which RPM reads and redirects to a local printer.

    Will RPM pickup local attached printers, or just networked printers?

    There are a lot of 3rd parties out there who have excellent add ons to sharepoint for education

    Hunterstone for a content repository and more
    B4 contact for Sharepoint CMS
    Novotronix for Infopath forms and development
    Mindmapping in Sharepoint from Matchware

    I recommend these as I've used them in projects

    You mention Richard from Salamander and then there is Twynham

    On Codeplex there is Dave Rookes drop box. Dave is in a school in Telford and has done some excellent work using reporting services.
