New Release of the Event Receivers Manager

Thanks to everyone who has sent me comments. Today I've uploaded v1.1 of the Event Receivers Manager to my CodePlex site (http://www.codeplex.com/elblanco) which fixes the issues related to the breadcrumb controls on the application pages. I'd like to thank Karine Bosch of U2U for helping me out with this by sending me sample code and pointing me to a useful article by Mikhail Dikov – thanks Karine!

Once you've downloaded the new release you can install it as previously described, or if you already have the solution installed simply upgrade it with the following command:

stsadm –o upgradesolution –name BlancoWorld.EventReceiversManager.wsp –filename BlancoWorld.EventReceiversManager.wsp –immediate -allowGacDeployment

People have also reported issues with the solution not working on WSS 3.0. I tested the solution on a vanilla WSS 3.0 install and everything appears to be working fine, and there's no reason why it shouldn't as there's nothing in the solution that is MOSS-specific. People are reporting that the "Event Receivers" link is not displaying in the list settings page in WSS. The only thing I can think of is that you haven't activated the Site Collection feature as this is what puts the link in place. Running the two stsadm commands on the command line only adds and deploys the solution, which installs the feature – it doesn't activate the feature. Hope this solves some people's issues, if not then please get in touch again with more details and I'll try and resolve any problems.


  • if you update this, it would be great if there was a way to edit the sequence numbers.

  • I am having the same missing Event Receiver link issue. The .wsp is deployed and it has been verified @ SharePoint admin console.

    Any more ideas? It also is not listed in Site Features.
