So I switched to a new development environment and started setting up the site and the Visual Studio project. I created a new site using the Deployment Center and then hade the site and vpp folder as well as the SQL database replace with a copy from my old development environment. The site runs as expected but when I log in to my account and right click there is no menu and when I paste a link to a page in edit mode I get 404.
What's causing this? Any ideas?
What version are you runnig?
Have you checked the uiURL settings in episerver.config to see here your ui root is?
Sorry, I forgot to mention. I'm in 6.1.379.0
The root is set to /administration/CMS/ and when I visit it I get the 404 followed by:
Have you tried removing the language segment "/sv" from the URL?
Hmm. When removing it I get our Danish site since it's the first in the alphabetical order but when adding the /administration/ I get a redirect to http://localhost/Util/login.aspx?administration. That's atleast something new, but it still gives me 404.
Hi. Did you solve this or is it still an issue?
No, I haven't had any time to look into into it. And to be honest, I don't know where to begin. Could I somehow have missed a component that needs to be added? The demo site I first installed and replaced it with worked fine though and the old development site as well, so I wouldn't see where it would had gotten lost.
Ok. Trying to give some input on how to problem solve this:
Yes, of course! Your last step nailed it. The old development environment ran Windows Server 2008 and referenced C:\Program Files\EPiSever\... while Windows 7 uses C:\Program Files (86x)\EPiServer. A quick replace of the virtual paths in episerver.config and it's all working as expected again. Thank you so much for pointing that out!
Perhaps I can take advantage of your knowledge once more while we're on the subject of moving to a new develop environment. When I open up the project in Visual Studio 2008 I get the following error message when I try to build. Any idea why?
"The "BuildWebProfile" task could not be loaded from the assembly WebProfileBuilder, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=01d50f1f82943b0c. Could not load file or assembly 'WebProfileBuilder, Version=126.96.36.199, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=01d50f1f82943b0c' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, and that the assembly and all its dependencies are available. BmEPi"
Hmm, I've never heard of that and I don't think that it has to do with EPiServer. First search hit when I google it gives me a MSDN page that states "Web Profile Builder supports Visual Studio 2005 and 2008". Might it be that you are using Visual Studio 2012 on your new machine?
Sorry about my late replies. I wish I could concentrate harder on this problem but right now there's too much happening.
I'm not using 2012, I'm running 2008 and that's what I did in the last dev environment as well. I found the link below but the row he tells me to add is already in the project file. Any ideas? I re-installed the project but nothing.
Sorry, I missed the link at the top. A re-install of the WebProfileBuilder 1.3 did the trick. Thanks for all your help, Linus!
