After succesfull finishing of installation process the webpart appears in central administration - list of features, but it does not appear in Webparts library of site. The feature is deployed and activated.

Try this:

  • Go to your Main Page, Choose “Site Actions”, “Site Settings”, “Modify All Site Settings”
  • In the column “Galleries”, choose “Web Parts”
  • Click “New”
  • Check the “Overwrite if file already exists?”
  • Look for the SPOShowBirthdayWebPart and check this too
  • Click the button “Populate Gallery”
  • Try adding the web part to a webpart zone.

Let me know if this works or not. Thanks.

Sorry, but there is no webpart SPOCollap... in the webparts gallery. The webpart is listed only in central administration as deployed globaly.

The webpart is listed in Site collection features too. But it is not in web part gallery. How do I get it there?

It looks like the installer/WSP (for 2.0 version)  installs version 1.0 of the runtime (version number of the dll in the gac), but the web part is linked to version 2.0. (checked the log file).  I'm therefore not able to use the webpart.
