I am working on a visual force page, and have reached a point where I need a custom controller to accomplish what I want. When I open up the developer console, and attempt to "open execute anonymous window" (Ctrl+E) I get an error message that says:
You don't have the permission to execute Apex
How can I change this? In a similar question here I saw that I need to set my "Author Apex" permission under "Administrative Permissions", however I cannot find Administrative Permission settings. Note that I have a System Administrator profile using Salesforce Profession edition.
Edit: The core issue is that I need the ability to execute Apex. Not necessarily using the developer console.
