    'Maximum request length exceeded' error when trying to install with fix

    This isn't a bug report in itself, but I encountered a problem installing this package, and fixed the issue, so I thought I'd share what I did:

    When I tried to install the package, I got a server error saying "Maximum request length exceeded". I found this post in the similar topics bar, and found the solution there. All you have to do is open the web.config file in the site's root directory, search for "httpRuntime" and add the following to the httpRuntime tag:

    maxRequestLength="1048576" executionTimeout="3600"

    Mine now looks like this:

    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="1048576" executionTimeout="3600" requestValidationMode="2.0" enableVersionHeader="false" />

    After saving, and uploading the package again, I no longer got the error. Hope this helps if anyone else ran into the same issue.
