A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Web Part Page cannot be displayed or imported because it is not registered on this site as safe.
There are two possible causes: either the Web part has not been strongly named/hasn't been added as such in the Web.config, or the Web part's DLL or one of its referenced DLLs were not placed in the bin directory.
Below are steps to make a Web part safe:
1. The assembly has to have a strong name. You need the strong name tool sn.exe. From the command line:
cd \Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\SDK\v1.1\Bin
sn.exe -k “YourProjectPath\ProjectNameKeyPair.snk”
2. In the AssemblyInfo.cs file, find
and change it to
scroll to the end and replace the entry that reads
3. Compile your project. Now you need to get the public key token. To do so, run the sn.exe utility again:
sn.exe –T “YourProjectPath\obj\[Release or Debug]\AssemblyName.dll
4. In the .dwp file, replace the
AssemblyName, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=PublicKey
5. In the web.config file, you need to mark the Web Part as safe by adding the following under the SafeControls section:
<SafeControl Assembly="Copy_the_entry_from_the_dwp_file" Namespace=" Copy_the_entry_from_the_dwp_file" TypeName="*" Safe="True"/>
Remember that you need to repeat the above for every DLL referenced by the WebPart (directly or indirectly)
6. Copy the Web Part’s DLL (and dependencies) to the bin directory under the SharePoint directory. If there isn’t one, create it.
7. Add the .dwp file using the import function.
