I am using Microsoft Virtual PC to test the latest version of SLK under Windows 2003, SQL Server 2005, SharePoint Services 3.0, and .NET Framework 3.0.

All the steps were working properly except when I installed the "AssignmentListWebPart.webpart" webpart: when I added this webpart to the page, I got a message reading 'error, check server log file' instead of the menu showing 5 columns, and sandglasses instead of values!!

Please help me solve this issue.

It looks like that you forgot to enable sessions!

Go to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\<your sharepointsite>80\web.config:

First save the file as "web.config-orig" or so

Then go into the file and
1. Search for and UNcomment  this line <add name="Session" type="System.Web.SessionState.SessionStateModule" />
2. Search for and set <pages enableSessionState="false" to "true"

Hope that helps!
