I have a SharePoint 2013 development environment. The Microsoft.SharePoint.dll assembly does not contain LimitedWebPartManager. I want to use a sandbox solution to provision a page and the web parts on it.

I'm not going insane: the LimitedWebPartManager class does not exist, and SPPage and the other classes don't have GetLimitedWebPartManager methods. I've checked with ILSpy/Reflector, the methods and classes are simply not there.

What gives, and what can I do instead?

The Server Side LimitedWebPartManager class is not available in Sandbox Solutions (both 2010 and 2013). However there is a SP.WebParts.LimitedWebPartManager class in the JavaScript Client Object Model which you can use in your Sandbox Solution.

See this link for examples: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh185010(v=office.14).aspx

Hope this helps.
