    uComponents activation

    Where can I find the uComponents activation screen that I first got after installation?

    Hi Michiel

    I'm not sure you can go directly to that screen again but the content on the activation screen is located in a file called: uComponentsInstaller.ascx. The file is located in the /umbraco/plugins/uComponents-folder.

    If you want to activate some features you can go to the documentation page on Codeplex to see how this is done though.

    Hi Michiel,

    As Kim says there is no way to get back to the post-installation screen from via Umbraco itself.  All the "activator" screen did was provide a quick way to enable specific features - by adding the required config settings.  (Kim's link to the uComponents documentation provides all the details).

    With that said, there is a way to get back to the "activator" screen, by using it as a dashboard control.

    Add the following to your "/config/Dashboard.config" file:

    <section alias="uComponentsInstaller">
        <areas>
            <area>developer</area>
        </areas>
        <tab caption="uComponents: Activator">
            <control>/umbraco/plugins/uComponents/uComponentsInstaller.ascx</control>
        </tab>
    </section>

    Keep in mind that this will not deactivate/uninstall anything, only activate/install.

    Cheers, Lee.

    Thanks, I needed to do the same thing and used the /config/Dashboard.config method.

    I couldn't find any instructions at the Codeplex documentation link.

    Good call Matt, I've added a new page to the documentation on CodePlex: http://ucomponents.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=PostInstall
