KB10017: Unknown operation 'operation'
This happens if a DLL implementing the operation cannot be loaded. One of the possible reasons is - a dependency is missing (e.g. WSE3)



An ASP.NET error message with such section is shown:

...[ReflectionTypeLoadException: Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.]..

Unknown operation 'generateReports'.
Axinom.AECMS.CmsException: Unknown operation 'generateReports'.

Instead of 'generateReports' there can be any other operation, e.g. 'publishPage'.


The cause is, that the needed DLL (where the 'operation' is implemented) cannot be loaded. allows you as a project developer to create his own CmsActivities (=operations) and let execute them. If the implementing DLL of any of its dependencies is missing, this exception is thrown. A typical case of such dependency is WSE3 (Web Service Extensions).


Ensure all needed DLLs where deployed correctly and all prerequisites are installed.

If WSE is not installed, install WSE 3.0 as described in the Installation Guide. It should be installed on the Web Server(s) running Management System and Publish Service.
