Hi there!

I am trying to use the Forms Renderer Function but it seems to have dissapeared from my site during the migration from XML based site to the MSSQL dito.

I seem to remember that I had some error with the migration caused by the Forms Renderer Function but since this took place some time ago and I am getting quite old I am not sure =)

So what to do, I can't find among the Installed packages in my site and I can't find it in the Available packages is it possible to download and install a separate package locally?

Do you see Composite.Forms.FormRenderer package under the System/Packages/Installed packages ?

Hi there!

No I can't see it and I even tried to use the function just to determine if it is installed and just "hidden" but it was not found hence throwing an error.

Information about installed packages stored here ~\App_Data\Composite\Packages\{package_ids_folders}. Composite.Forms.FormRenderer has Id = 6fe2ef97-15e6-4aca-a1e3-588d770b435b . Do you have folder with title "6fe2ef97-15e6-4aca-a1e3-588d770b435b" under ~\App_Data\Composite\Packages\ ?

It looks like Forms.Renderer is not installed. Online available module has minimumCompositeVersion="2.1.4246.22572" , so if your site is running on 2.1.1. version, you will not see this package under Available packages. You can download  2.1.1 compatible version from here -  and then install it as Local package -> System -> Packages -> Installed packages -> Local packages -> right click "Install local package"

The minimum Composite version should be "2.1.4113.99" (current release build)

>> how do I upgrade to

Upgrading 2.0 SP1 -> 2.1 

Upgrading C1 2.1 -> 2.1.1


>> How do get it

upgrate your site to the official release or you can find this package on the solutions where you have installed it (2.0 SP 1) - ~\App_Data\Composite\Packages\6fe2ef97-15e6-4aca-a1e3-588d770b435b\ - install it as Local package
