Some modules installed on DNN 6 are missing Import / Export Content Function


I have installed both FormMaster 2008 and DynamicForm on an DNN 6 instance. Both modules are missing

Import/Export content function.  It seems there is a property named as SupportedFeatures in table DesktopModules is set to default value 0 so the moduel is set to IsPortable = 0,  IsSearchable = 0 and IsUpgradeable=0. The Enumeration for  SupportedFeatures is:

public enum DesktopModuleSupportedFeature
    {
        IsPortable = 1,
        IsSearchable = 2,
        IsUpgradeable = 4
    }

We can run a query to change the setting for SupportedFeature in DesktopModules to value  3 (or 1) to turn on the built-in  IsPortable  function, so we can Import/Export content again in the module setting.

The query will look like this:

UPDATE DesktopModules

SET SupportedFeatures = 3

WHERE FriendlyName =’Form Master 2008′  Or FriendlyName =’Dynamic Forms’

If you run the SQL Script from HOST>SQL:

UPDATE {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}DesktopModules]

SET SupportedFeatures = 3

WHERE FriendlyName = ‘Form Master 2008’ OR FriendlyName = ‘Dynamic Forms’

After updating the value, you should restart your DNN website to reflect the change made.
