Hi.

can anyone please explain in more detail the meaning of the line "Install SLK 1.4" in the reamde.txt file of "SLK 1.4-Part 3"? Which steps described in the GettingStarted.pdf must be followed? The upgrade section says to use the "UpgradeSolution" command, but the SLK 1.4-Part 3 does'nt contain this file. What else must be done beside running upgradeSLKTo14.sql? What means "Reconfigure the Site Collection to upload SlkSettings.xml" - should it mean "... by uploading SlkSettings.xml"?

I did this:

Goto, Central Administration > Operations > Solution Management

Drill into the SLK -> Click Retract

Wait a minute, drill into SLK again, then delete it.

Modify the "AddSolution.bat" file from 1.3 and change the reference to point to your SLK1.4 wsp.

Within Central Administration > Operations > Solution Management, deploy the solution.

Run the SQL, then upload the .xml in Central Admin.

I probably made everything a lot more complicated than it needed to be, but everything seems to be working so far.
