I'm working on a CMS 5 project, and I'm specifically setting up the environment. I have no problem entering admin mode, although there are many images that are missing, but if I try to enter Edit mode then i get a strange error that says "Directory '[myAppDir]\Util' does not exist. Failed to start monitoring file changes."
Has anybody got this error before? Any ideas or suggestions would be great appreciated. Thanks in advance,
Check the <virtualPath></virtualPath> in the web.config file. See whether the physical path associated with "~/Util/" exists or not.
Hello and thanks for your reply.
That was you suggest was, as a matter of fact, the first thing I did and the physical path actually exists and points correctly to the Episerver installation folder. What i find really strange is that the path in the error message is pointing to the project folder instead...
Can you paste the virtual path configuration related to the "Util" and also the site settings "uiUrl"... Coz the edit mode uses this value to connect to the Edit Mode.
Here it goes
<add virtualPath="~/Util/" physicalPath="C:\Program Files\EPiServer\CMS\5.2.375.236\application\util" name="UtilFiles" type="EPiServer.Web.Hosting.VirtualPathNonUnifiedProvider,EPiServer"/>
and in site settings
Everything looks just normal to me.Thanks for your help!
Any chance you're running a 64 bit operating system?
As a matter of fact, yes I am! I run Windows 7 64 bits. I don't see how that would be important though...
For 64bit operating system's EPiServer gets installed in the Program Files (x86) folder. Try updating the paths to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\EPiServer\CMS\5.2.375.236\application\util etc.
well, in this case i only have Program Files and that's where Epi was installed, so the paths are completely valid. I forgot to mention that the environment is mounted in a virtual machine, in case that would matter..
