Cannot edit content, Free version - License issue?
Hi there

We have installed Kentico to test if we should use this CMS system for a number of corporate sites. Unfortunately, we cannot even edit the content, apparently due to a license restriction. I hope this is not the case, that you cannot even edit content on a free license, if that is the case, then we cannot even test if Kentico suits our needs.
Please help us resolve this matter.

How do I edit my site?

Kind Regards,
Jonas Nielsen

In Site Manager > Sites > Actions, i click the icon for "Edit content".

Either nothing happens, or I am shown this error message:

"The page can not be displayed due to license limitations Requested action was canceled due to nonfulfillment of some license limit. Please check event log to get more details."

Licensing info:
lic. domain lic. exp lic. edition lic. packages web farm serv 10/30/2010 Ultimate Unlimited
ourservername Full license Free 1
localhost 10/30/2010 Ultimate Unlimited

RE:Cannot edit content, Free version - License issue?

Do you have any Free license in your license keys in Site Manager -> Licenses section? If so, this edition is limited per 1 global admin only, as you can see here:

In this case, you need to make sure that you have 1 global admin only, or to use license of higher edition without this limitation.
