We are trying to create a connection to Salesforce from our APP.  We have a developer account and get the message "API is not enabled for this Organization or Partner' when we try connect.  Tried changing permissions but it still doesnt work.  Full message in response is below.  Any help will be much appreciated!  Cheers, Mark

1. First, check on the organization settings. Enterprise, Unlimited and Developer editions has the API enabled by default. Professional Customers can purchase this feature.
2. Check on the profile for the user. Access the profile settings in order to verify that API is enabled as well.
A. Click Setup | Administration Setup | Manage Users | Profiles.
B. Select the profile that you need to check, and under "Administrative Permissions" verify if API Enabled is checked.

Hi Mark,
The user you are using for establishing the connection should have a profile with API Enabled permission. Can you please verify if you have the permission.

I am receive the similar error message while creating a Force.com project. 

The edition that has been used is Developer Edition. 

The error message that i get is

"API is not enabled for this Organization or Partner"

Leveraged about sets however I cannot locate  Administration Setup | Manage Users | Profiles under setup.
