Kentico 7 License Upgrade Base to Ultimate- Missing features

Pavan Josyula asked on December 11, 2014 02:46

Hi all,

I have site with V7 base license in my dev machine, I have sticked new ultimate license from Licenses Tab under CMS Site manager. Now I am trying to set up Staging and Synchronization. I cannot find Microsoft.Web.Services3.dll under by bin directory so I have manually copied it from another Kentico Site. Also I cannot find Staging icon at this location CMSDesk –> Tools –> Staging -> Servers.

I am following this link Do I need to reinstall or some thing?

Could you please let me what do I need to do to unlock ultimate features?

PS: Previously this site was Kentico 6 I have upgraded it to 7 with base license a month ago.

Make sure you remove the base license. Also restarting the instance should help and clearing the cache in your browser will help with any image and/or javascript issues that could be left over from the 6 -> 7 upgrade.

The staging interface should be there also in the lower edition - it would just tell you you do not have access there. This looks like this module was not even installed. I would recommend to install a fresh v7 instance and use this project files, in case you have not customized or added custom code.
