    RadEditor lite deployed and activated on my wss 3.0 site but not showing as default list editor; wss standard editor shows instead. I've checked several threads online and I believe I've deployed the solution correctly and both the

    and 

    Use RadEditor to edit List Items in Internet Explorer as well

    site features showing as activated on the site settings. I've done an iisreset 3 times now; no luck.

    I was wondering about pre-reqs. Is ajax required for the lite editor?

    Anything else obvious I may be missing that I can check?

    Many thanx in advance!!

    Hello jackinthegreen,

    Could you confirm which version of RadEditor for MOSS are you using? Is it the Light RadEditor for MOSS or the full ASP.NET AJAX (5.x) version of the control?

    In addition you can find helpful information about RadEditor for MOSS in WSS v3 environment in the following help article: Installing RadEditor in a WSS v3 environment

    sorry, that's version 4.5.6.

    Thanks for that link as well, but I believe I followed those steps correctly. Again, the solution deployed fine and the features show as activated in the site features config. I know that the functionality is limited in WSS 3.0 compared to MOSS 2007, but I should still expect to see the RADEditor toolbar on  my list item editing view, rather than the default WSS editor's toolbar, correct?

    Thanks again for your help!

    Hi jackinthegreen,

    The first time you activate a RadEditor feature, you must be logged as an Administrator user. This is required, because the editor needs to update the default list editing template by copying a file - from \TEMPLATE\FEATURES\RadEditorFeature\RadEditorList.ascx to \TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES\RadEditorList.ascx.

    The file is copied by the IIS worker process, which in turn is impersonating the currently logged in user. That is why you need to be logged in as an Administrator to be able to copy the file. Once the file is copied, any user can activate/deactivate the RadEditor features. The RadEditorList.ascx file will stay until you uninstall the RadEditor for MOSS product. This means that is you upgrade to a newer version of the editor, you will need to re-activate (deactivate and then activate) the editor feature on any of the sites (only one is needed) in order for the RadEditorList.ascx file to be copied again. Again you should be logged in with an Administrator user when you activate the feature for the first time after an upgrade.



    All the best,

    Thanks for that info.

    When you say 'as an Administrator user' do you mean server admin, sharepoint farm admin, or SP site owner?  Tried as server admin and SP site owner; no luck. The install is a "stand-alone" WSS instance rather than a farm, so no Farm Admin; app pool runs under Network Service account.

    Question: can I just manually copy that control to the folder you cited?

    Thanks!

    // check that; I looked in \TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES\ and RadEditorList.ascx is already in there, so I guess the activation succeeded that far(?)

    OK, not sure what happened but all the sudden the toolbars are showing (?!?.. maybe a reboot of server occured?) anyway, not looking "a gift horse in the mouth"; just glad it's working (fo now);

    Thanks!
