    TargetInvocationException when trying Examine

    I was trying to implement site search to my existing Umbraco website, following the video tutorial on Examine.

    Now, everytime I open a document type under Settings, it gives me this error.

    System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.ArgumentException: Input parameter 'controlId' cannot be an empty string.

    I tried restoring ExamineIndex.config and ExamineSettings.config as far as I could remember, but the error persists.

    Any idea how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

    This was because I changed the clientIdMode in web.config
