While i'm tring to install a TimerJob with the event reciever, i get this error:

An exception of type 'System.Security.SecurityException' occurred in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll but was not handled in user code Additional information: Access denied.

I even cheked the trust level on my webconfig and its 'Full'. The featue also runed with a fram account . the scope is web.

here is the code :

public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)
                SPWeb web = properties.Feature.Parent as SPWeb;

                SPSite site = web.Site as SPSite;
                    using (SPSite elevatedSite = new SPSite(site.ID))
                        // make sure the job isn't already registered   
                        foreach (SPJobDefinition job in elevatedSite.WebApplication.JobDefinitions)
                            if (job.Name == "aaa")
                        // install the job   
                        SITEP_DataBaseSynchronisation.TimerJob.SITEP_DataBaseSynchronisation_TimerJob corpProfileJob = new SITEP_DataBaseSynchronisation.TimerJob.SITEP_DataBaseSynchronisation_TimerJob("aaa", site.WebApplication);

                        corpProfileJob.Properties.Add("WebName", web.ServerRelativeUrl);
                        corpProfileJob.Properties.Add("WebURL", web.Url);
                        corpProfileJob.Properties.Add("Web", web.ID.ToString());
                        corpProfileJob.Properties.Add("Site", web.Site.ID.ToString());

                        // Updates the timer schedule values   
                        //SPDailySchedule schedule = new SPDailySchedule();
                        //schedule.BeginHour = 18;
                        //schedule.EndHour = 19;
                        //schedule.BeginMinute = 58;
                        //schedule.EndMinute = 00;
                        //schedule.BeginSecond = 0;
                        //schedule.EndSecond = 0;
                        SPMinuteSchedule schedule = new SPMinuteSchedule();
                        schedule.BeginSecond = 0;
                        schedule.EndSecond = 59;
                        schedule.Interval = 15;                  
                        corpProfileJob.Schedule = schedule;
            catch (Exception ex) { }

In your timer job cs file override HasAdditionalUpdateAccess

protected override bool HasAdditionalUpdateAccess()
    return true;

Also try activating feature via SharePoint Management Shell.


My guess would be that the Application Pool Account, doesn't have permission to add/delete jobs to/from the WebApplication. So if you're always activating the feature using the Farm account try remove the RunWithElevatedPrivileges
