    Installing Glimpse MVC plugin makes site go 404


    I want to use Glimpse for inspecting my server side. I'm running a fresh 6.1.1 in Mvc mode and latest Glimpse from Nuget. 

    Using only Glimpse Core 1.4.2 and ASP.NET modules it works, but when I install the Glimpse MVC 4 plugin all pages on my site goes 404 Not found. Removing the MVC4 plugin restores pages and basic Glimpse. Although without the MVC specifics in the Tabs. (TImeline is very limited as it does not display controllers/actions/views etc)

    Anyone using Glimpse MVC and Umbraco 6.x? Any tips on this? Could it be somehow that the request pipeline gets messed with? 

    Thanks in advance,

    Same problem here using Umbraco 6.1.1 MVC. Glimpse is working in the back office for me but I get 404 not found for front end when Glimpse is enabled

    I could not get uGlimpse to work unfortunately. My findings were that it is for an older version of Glimpse. (0.87 = todays plugins don't work = no MVC) I grabbed the source for it over at Bitbucket and tried to recompile against new Glimpse but the interfaces seems to be all different.

    I'm not an Umbraco developer, but I do know quite a bit about Glimpse and would happily help you upgrade uGlimpse to work with newer builds of Glimpse.

    Glimpse has a developer mailing list that would be great for you to post your questions to.

    Hi Nik,

    Did anyone ever get back to you on this? I am still unable to get Glimpse MVC running with Umbraco. I'd love to figure out what Umbraco does that prevents it working out of the box.

    I ran into the same issue when using the Glimpse.MVC4 NuGet package - 404 for any frontend request / backoffice was fine - (it also gave me bunch of warnings in Visual Studio about the dependencies being out of date).

    So I uninstalled the 'Glimpse.MVC4' package (and dependencies), then just installed the Glimpse.AspNet package... and all worked as expected.

    I know this is an old thread, I just wondered if anyone managed to get Glimpse.Mvc4 working with Umbraco 7.x

    I have tried to install it and receive the same 404 errors for frontend pages, it's a shame is it looks like a nice tool and would be great to extend with an Umbraco debugging tab ;)

    Do you know this package?

    Confirmed that Glimpse.MVC5 also results in front end 404s :(

    I really need the Model Binding tab which the Glimpse7 package doesn't appear to give.

    Has anyone managed to work out how to fix this? I too am having this problem. Are there any other decent profiling tools that work with Umbraco apart from Miniprofiler?
