Hi.

I would like to start module development  but I am slightly confused about the installation process. I have already downloaded and installed the DNN Platform onto my local computer without issue. I got the download from here...

http://dotnetnuke.codeplex.com/

...which was a zip file called DNN_Platform_07.02.00_Install

I looked up how to start module development and am now following this tutorial...

http://www.dnnsoftware.com/Community/Learn/Video-Library/View-Video/Video/437/View/Details/DotNetNuke-Explained-Basic-Module-Development

...and I got to this link...

http://bit.ly/moduledev

...which took me here...

http://www.dnnsoftware.com/community-blog/cid/134662/Getting-ready-for-DotNetNuke-Module-Development

...then clicked the DotNetNuke Wiki about Setting Up Your Development Environment link which took me here...

http://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/Page/development-environment

...and I got as far as the INSTALLATION CONFIGURATION and the DOWNLOAD section. I click on download and it takes me to here...

http://www.dnnsoftware.com/Platform/Start/Extend

...so, what do I do from here? There is nothing to download?

Thanks for your time with this.

Hi ElCapitan_Baller,

Dotnetnuke module development is totally different. You have downloaded install folder that will only setup your base dotnetnuke Website. It will only contains ascx and DLL files.

Todo the custom module development you need to download DNN_Platform_07.02.00_Source zip file. It will contains solution file and libary folder, you need to build that solution so that you will get respective DLL files. Put all those in bin folder of website and start running that website. Once installation done, you can start module development using source code.

You can refer to DNN module base code and start developing.

Hope this helps.
