    Upgrade from 4.0.3 to 4.5.2 - Tree JavaScript error

    Hi Everyone

    I've been checking through the forum but can't find a way to solve this:

    • Upgraded from 4.0.3 to 4.5.2 on Win 2003 / .NET 4.0
    • Extracted zip files using WinRAR
    • Network Service has full control over everything

    However, the tree is empty because of a JS error: Illegal character on umbraco.aspx line 143:

    {javascript:parent.right.document.location.href = \u0027plugins/appmanager/editApp.aspx\u0027;}

    I have created a flat version on umbraco.aspx (.e.g. umbracoFlat.aspx) and changed this line to

    {javascript:parent.right.document.location.href = "\u0027plugins/appmanager/editApp.aspx\u0027";}

    and it seems to work OK. Is there any trick to get those pesky double quotes in place?

    Are you sure you've overwritten the /umbraco folder with the 4.5 files? I cannot even find any part of this code in 4.5..

    Hi Sebastiaan

    Thanks for your reply and sorry about taking this long.

    I can see what you mean and I can't find this code either on a brand new 4.5.2 installation. I'm using the files from and copying the /umbraco, /bin, etc folders on top of the old 4.0.3 version (as per instructions on the wiki).

    However, I did the upgrade without removing packages so I guess one must be incompatible and blocking the tree. I'll try again with a "cleaner" version  and will confirm if the issue dissappears.

    Once again sorry about the delay in posting about this case.

    The issue was caused by the App Manager plugin, as I could have discovered by looking at both the affected JS line and at this thread

    After also running into the "missing Media folder" issue (luckily documented here), I finally have completed the migration to 4.5 and everything is fine, so far.
