DNN 7 Won't go into edit mode or not working with control bar

Dear All,
Today when i install the DNN 7 then i found and issue in edit mode after installation.

The problem is when i go to edit mode the page refresh with out enabling the edit mode, after a short research on Google i found the solution. I hppe it save your time

1. backup your web.config

2. Open your web.config in a text editor

3. within the web.config file, find the <system.webserver><modules> section.

4.  If the <modules> section says <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="false"> change it to <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">
 if it just says <modules>, change it to <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">

5. Save the config file.

6. Retry by refreshing the page and trying again.  You can also test this out by trying to a do a journal post (which also uses the services framework in an authenticated way.

If some how its will not work then, you must change the control panel bar from control bar to ribbon bar 

Here are the steps
Go to host tab > Host settings > Other settings > Change control panel bar from control bar to ribbon bar

  1. Thanks, this fixed my sites problems. You Rock!!!!!!!!!

  2. Thanks, this fixed my website problem as well. I've been having this issue for months!!! Its such a relief to have finally have it fixed.

  3. I had changed my but still it's not working.

    1. Please rebuild your web application or restart you DNN application pool some of the hosting server (specially cloud environment) did not able to update the web.config with our re-building an application.

      Because of this reason your web.config file is not updated even you upload the new file through ftp

  4. This solution also helps you to in the fresh 7.1.1 installation

  5. Yes! The move to ribbon bar fixed my issue we've dealt with for months as well! Thank you.

  6. Nope, this doesn't fix the problem. Had the problem now for months and tried this a couple months back. Close to totally abandoning DNN.

    1. please make sure you are updating the right changes i already applied it and it's works

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed

Dear Readers
if you get the error

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed

Here is the solution 
Get a command prompt in administrator mode and go to C:\Windows\Microsoft .NET\FrameWork64\
and run aspnet_regiis -r. This will re-register the right libraries. It has happened twice already to me.
For other frameworks (32 bit or other versions of .net make sure you go to the correct folder (i.e. Framework/, etc.)

xxxx is the the number which is present with the folder name so i suggest you guys to check the folder name in your directory

If "run aspnet_regiis -r" is not working and if you get the error run is not recognized command then just type " aspnet_regiis -r" it will run fine

Reason of problem
Your frame work has been change may be you have install the lower version on the higher version or may be because of any reason you have register another version in your IIS, in my cas…
