Great news - the *.zip installation for EPiServer is back!

With the release of EPiServer CMS R2 (version 5.2.375.7) the installation of modules and plug-ins via *.zip files was interrupted. However, through the power of the people EPiServer decided to re-introduce the *.zip installation, which is really good news for the modules here on EPiCode (for more information read Paul Smith's blog at labs.

For information on how to package a module as a *.zip file, please read Mari Jørgensen's post at labs.

If you have a module on EPiCode today (or are planning to submit one) please make a R2 *.zip installation file of it!

Using Modules in EPiServer CMS R2

With EPiServer CMS 5 R2, the "Install Module" feature disappeared along with the "old" EPiServer CMS Manager. The new msi based EPiServer CMS 5 Installation Manager can also handle module installations, but creating these installation packages for R2 is more time consuming and complex than it used to be.

Accordingly, it will take some time before the modules on EPiCode is R2-enabled. Check the different modules download page to see if R2 is supported. If there is no separate R2 download, you will have to download the source code and add the run-time files manually, or you can extract the files in the R1 .zip file and deploy them manually (importing any pages and applying web.config changes.)

If you're a module owner, and want to create an installer for R2, please check out the Getting Started blog post by Fredrik Tjärnberg.
