Hi !

I activated the SPViewPermissionSetting site collection feature.

However, when I try to access a list or library on an anonymous site as an anonymous user, I get the following error.

The "ListViewWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator.

Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.

I am able to access the list or library when I do one of the following:

a. When I deactivate the feature and try to access as an anonymous user

b. When I activate the feature and try to access as an authenticated user.

Same issue. Would love to get a fix or find some other tool that does the job of hiding list views from certain groups.
