I am trying to provision a page to the sitepages folder (not that it needs to be in this folder) then change the welcome page to this page.
I have a feature which was in another package (project) that activated, but the welcome page did not change. Yet when I deactivated the feature and then reactivated it, the welcome page changed fine.
I now separated the feature into a project of its own and to start off, the new feature does not activate automatically even though I think I have it right. Yet when activate the feature manually, the welcome page is set correctly.
The setting are as follows:
active deployemnt configuration is set to default. Assembly depployment is set to GAC. the rest is true, false, site url, and none respectively.
Can anyone assist? If the code is required I shall be more than glad to provide it.
