Installation Instructions

  1. Download the Hotfix4 package.
  2. The package is provided in a compressed ZIP file. Unzip the package on a machine in the server farm. The package contains the following files:
    • NPSharePoint.wsp. This is an updated copy of the SharePoint Solution package provided with the 3.0 release of the TMCore SharePoint Module.
    • NPOfficeServer.wsp. This is an updated copy of the SharePoint Solution package provided with the 3.0 release of the TMCore SharePoint Module.
  3. Use stsadm to upgrade the NPSharePoint.wsp and NPOfficeServer.wsp solutions on the server. The exact command-line you use will depend on how you want to schedule the upgrade, but in any case it must include the -allowgacdeployment option. A sample command line would be:
    stsadm -o upgradesolution -name NPSharePoint.wsp -filename NPSharePoint.wsp -local -allowgacdeployment
    stsadm -o upgradesolution -name NPOfficeServer.wsp -filename NPOfficeServer.wsp -local -allowgacdeployment
  4. After applying the solution updates it may be necessary to restart IIS.
  5. If you have installed the NPCL Editor Extensions for the TMCore SharePoint Module, copy the contents of the NPCLEditorExtensions directory to the extensions installation directory for NPCL Editor. The path to the extensions directory will depend on your installation but will typically be either: C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataNetworkedPlanetNPCLEditorExtensions or C:Documents and Settings{User Name}Application DataNetworkedPlanetNPCLEditorExtensions
  6. Change Log
    • DOCS: Added documentation of the list Auto-classification feature to the Site Developers Guide.
    • BUGFIX: _ITEM_URL_ column now returns the correct URL for links to items on nested sites.
    • BUGFIX[695]: Fixed a security exception in the ItemDeleted event handler that could cause topics to not get deleted from the topic map when the item is deleted via a site that uses forms-based authentication.
    • BUGFIX: Fixed content type mapping lookup to take account of URL mappings in NPUrlMap.xml. This means that when using extended sites, there is now no need to duplicate the content type mappings.
    • BUGFIX: Fixed reporting of TopicMapIndexClient connection errors to include stack trace.
    • BUGFIX[685]: Fixed CustomAction Id clash that occasionally caused ASP.NET errors when displaying List Settings on a site with the NPClassification feature enabled.
    • BUGFIX[690]: Fixed the login dialog for the NPCL Editor extensions to accept user names in the traditional <domain><user> form instead of <domain>/<user>
    • ENHANCEMENT: Web parts and AssociatedTopicsFields now use a common cache for context topics during page request processing. This will reduce the number of database queries required to display pages/list items that have multiple query web parts or multiple related topics fields on them.
    This hotfix also rolls in the fixes previously provided in Hotfix 1, Hotfix 2, and Hotfix 3. For Further Support If you have any questions about this hotfix or require any further support, please contact us at support@networkedplanet.com.
