No add / save variation button?


I have 2 commerce kickstart installations:
1: I installed all demo features to get to know it
2: I did not install the demo part because I want to use this for a real store; Also this one is in Dutch

When I create a new "varation type" + display without changing any options on site 1, I am able to add & save variations.
However, on site 2, no matter what I do, it seems impossible to add multiple variations to a product.

Here's a very short video to show the problem: http://screencast.com/t/GeadfKUH1L
I suppose it's something really stupid that I have forgotten, but as far as I can see , all modules are enabled , ... I really can't find it, so any help appreciated

Thank you

Don't know if you still need a fix but I figured it out.

You must go to your content type and add in the variation in the manage fields to that specific product display.

Inside manage fields you'll probably add a new field. if the variations isn't already existing
label: Product Variations
Field type: product reference
widget: inline entity form

next edit the operations.

at the bottom of the form under field settings change the number of values greater than one. The demo has it unlimited.

after you save all that the variations button should show up.

The button shows up, but it still doesn't work like it should...

I have the same problem while I have the values set at unlimited, it does not matter what I set it at, it remains the same, I get no variation button. It happens with only one content type for products out of the 4 I have in use.

I can still see the variations, I can move them around and delete them, but cannot add any new variations.
If I set it to =10 then I see a small message

a new one -> you have added 0 out of 10 allowed products.
an existing one -> You have added 3 out of 10 allowed products.

It is just the button 'create variation', it disappeared... I looked in the css, it is not a case of 'display: none', it is not there at all.
