EPiServer Community 4, Composer 4 and Mail 5 now supports ASP.NET 4.0

One month back we announced that EPiServer CMS 6 supports running on the ASP.NET 4 platform. Read more about that as well as some of the advantages with ASP.NET 4 in Allan Thræn’s article.

Today we are announcing that the following products also support ASP.NET 4.0:

To run each of these products on ASP.NET 4 you need to make the following configuration changes:

EPiServer Community 4

Make the following changes for EPiServer Community 4 in Web.config:

  • Remove sectionGroup System.Web.Extensions since it will conflict with same sectionGroup defined in machine.config:

    <sectionGroup name="system.web.extensions">... </sectionGroup>  
  • Remove the current HttpHandler for the IndexingService:
     
    <handlers>
    <clear/>
        …
    <add name="svc-Integrated" path="*.svc" verb="*" type="System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpHandler, System.ServiceModel, Version=3.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" resourceType="Unspecified" preCondition="integratedMode"/>
        …
    </handlers>
     
    Add a new handler which reflects the new assembly that System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpHandler resides in when using .NET 4.0:
     
    <add name="ServiceModel-4.0" path="*.svc" verb="*" type="System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpHandler, System.ServiceModel.Activation, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" preCondition="managedHandler,runtimeVersionv4.0" /> 

EPiServer Composer 4

Make the following changes for EPiServer Composer 4 in Web.config:

  • Add the ScriptResourceHandler to make sure that all scripts are loaded correctly:
     
    <system.webServer>
    <handles>
    <add name="ScriptResourceHandler" verb="GET,HEAD" path="ScriptResource.axd" type="System.Web.Handlers.ScriptResourceHandler, System.Web.Extensions, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" preCondition="integratedMode"/>
    </handles>
    </system.webServer>
     
  • Remove the cross-site scripting protection in asp.net request validation:

    <system.web>
        <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0"/>
    <pages validateRequest="false" />
    </system.web>
     

EPiServer Mail 5

Make the following changes for EPiServer Mail 5 in Web.config:

  • Remove sectionGroup System.Web.Extensions since it will conflict with same sectionGroup defined in machine.config:
     
    <sectionGroup name="system.web.extensions">... </sectionGroup> 
  • Change the redirect for assembly System.Web.Extensions from version 3.5.0.0 to 4.0.0.0.
     
  • Add in EPiServerMail\MailSources\EPiServerMailHTMLEditorMailSource.ascx:13:
      
    <asp:CustomValidator ClientValidationFunction="RadEditorNamespace.SaveAllEditors()//" runat="server" /> 
    before

    </asp:Panel> 
  • Add the attribute ClientIDMode set to AutoID for ComponentArt:MultiPage in EPiServerMail\MessagePopup.ascx:35:
     
    <ComponentArt:MultiPage id="multiPageTabs" runat="server" CssClass="multiPage" Width="99%" ClientIDMode="AutoID">
