Remove Old Winshuttle License Activations

Trying to activate a new CENTRAL license returns the error

You cannot have Enterprise- and Workgroup-type licensing together.

The problem is likely due to having expired licenses.  To view these, change the view from By Products to By Activation on the Manage Licenses page.

Next, select View All Activations.

You should now be able to delete the old expired license activation.

Now on the Activate Licenses page you should be able to browse to your XML activation file and activate successfully.

unable to cast object of type microsoft.sharepoint.webcontrols.splinkbutton

Been a long time since the last post…at least it feels like it.

Just finished troubleshooting an issue where a default page wouldn’t load.  The correlation ID pointed to an Unexpected error in the SharePoint ULS logs stating:

unable to cast object of type microsoft.sharepoint.webcontrols.splinkbutton

The site settings page would load (modifying the URL manually) as would View All Site Content.  However, clicking on any of the lists or libraries would throw the error.  We initially thought this was an issue with the default.aspx page getting corrupted, as we could create a new blank web part page in SPD, place it in the root of the web, and it would load up okay. 

What fixed this:  IISRESET!

Again, the same lesson learned, all over again.

SharePoint troubleshooting steps:

  1. IISRESET
  2. Everything else
