SharePoint solution activate button is disabled


Today we are working on integrating CRM with SharePoint. As we all know if we need to upload list component in SharePoint and activate it. When I tried upload, observed that the Activate button is disabled even though I logged in as Admin.

The problem is that “SharePoint User Code Host” service was disabled which was of course due to the “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service” being Stopped (or probably in this case just never started to begin with).

To start the service, navigate to Open Central Administration–> System Settings –> Manage Services on Server and start “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service”.

Hope it helps.

Happy CRM’ing
