Finally got it loaded - and yes the dependency is also loaded and enabled ---
New CiviEvent does not show a box to check to enable Volunteers.
Also, if I go to the Volunteer tab in the main menu, and click on Manage Volunteer Projects, it throws a permissions error (I have full Drupal and CiviCRM administration priviledges)
"API permission check failed for VolunteerUtil/getbeneficiaries call; insufficient permission: require edit own volunteer projects"
Thanks in advance
