Another component has already added an HttpSessionState to the context. Please make sure only one session state module should be registered.

After installing the Bamboo Alerts Plus Web part into our SharePoint environment, one of our portals displayed the following error message.

2011 06 30 08 18 44

Naturally I backed up the web.config files manually before installing a third-party application and so I decided to fire up BeyondCompare and look at exactly what changes the web part installation had made.


I then tried commenting out the Session line as shown below


This fixed the error message but prevented the web part from working.

Alerts plus error

A quick search of the web found this page confirming that this behaviour is ‘by design’.

I subsequently suffixed the Session value with ‘2’ as shown here within both <modules> and <httpmodules> tags


This allowed the web part to function as it should.
