    Courier Tree Issue - Question on Manual Installation

    Umbraco v6 - installed Courier_2.7.8.2.v6

    The installation went OK (no errors). When I click the "Courier" icon on the bottom to switch to the tab, there's nothing under the root "Courier" tree. No console errors. By looking at courier.config, one would think that I would see something in the tree since I added a domain location.

    enter image description here

    <repository name="http://local.scott-clone.com" alias="http://local.scott-clone.com" type="CourierWebserviceRepositoryProvider" visible="true">
      <url>http://local.scott-clone.com</url>;
      <user>0</user>
    </repository>
    

    nightly builds (hotfix)

    I see that there are "hotfixes" out there, but these require manual installation. After reading the installation procedure, I came across this:

    Installation PDF

    It states, "To install the database we need to execute a sql script against the database umbraco is installed on. Courier currently only supports SQL server 2005 and 2008."

    Is this a true fact? I'm on SQL 2012, and cannot downgrade.

    Is this b/c I haven't purchased a license yet, and using it in a testing environment against (2) local sites?

    @Scott

    Yes, it is a license issue. Without a license you won't see the locations or revisions unless you run from http://localhost

    Yeah I was playing with it yesterday/today and am probably going to have to write custom deployments b/c I use 3rd party packages like uComponents (data grids) for example, and have noticed that those do not get pushed to other locations (in this case my 2nd local website for test purposes).

    Also noted is that members aren't transferred either.

    Am I correct on those?

    Thanks

    Yes, correct on both counts.

    Before you invest too much time in creating custom resolvers you should know that both the Umbraco v6 and Courier for v6 branches are closed. We highly recommend you use the v7 versions of both.

    I would love to use v7, but the client only has .NET 4 on their servers, and I'm fairly certain v7 runs on .NET 4.5
