SP2010 Central Admin no SharePoint Learning Kit Configuration

I have installed SLK 1.5.2 into my development SharePoint farm, this farm has a APP server which hosts CA and a WFE server which hosts the Web Apps. I have logged into the server and installed using PowerShell the SLK wsp. 

The features all appear to be installed, here is a view of the installed features:

SharePointLearningKit           00057002-c978-11da-ba52-00042350e42e Web
SharePointLearningKitAdmin     00057005-c978-11da-ba52-00042350e42e Farm
SharePointLearningKitAssign... fcef4757-bc3f-42c0-8a37-a09e010fcd57 Web
SharePointLearningKitAssign... eba21329-10fb-411c-9a28-62ec10a95446 Web
SharePointLearningKitWebParts  47c03bc9-aac7-447d-aac4-33c495c96eea     Site

When I go to Central Admin I do not see the configuration page and checking IIS under _admin I do not have the SharePointLearningKit as others say they do. You mention if the page doesn't appear enable the feature to the farm. looking at my Farm features under CA I do not see any SLK ones.

Any ideas how to get the page to appear? I have checked the Site Collection and I have seen the features their to enable, which I have, but of course without the DB config they are not available for me to use as web parts.

Which version of SharePoint?

Have you deployed the solution to the central admin web application?

Hi Richard,


Many thanks for the prompt reply.  

I have SharePoint 2010 Enterprise (14.0.6029.1000). When I deployed the solution using the Manage Farm Solutions originally I set it to deploy the  Web Application which will host the actual learning site. I then retracted the solution and deployed to all. Checking the properties I see the solution is deployed to the actual web application (not CA)

You'll need to deploy to central admin as well as it's on a separate server.
