    6.1.5 Umbraco NuGet Package wont run: Could not load type 'Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication'.

    When I have installed the NuGet package and run my solution I get a server error:

    Parser Error Message: Could not load type 'Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication'.
    Source Error: 
    Line 1:  <%@ Application Codebehind="Global.asax.cs" Inherits="Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication" Language="C#" %>

    I don't know what I am doing wrong. is there a problem with the package?

    I am following the process documented here using VS2012:

    • Create new empty MVC4 application
    • Open NuGet and select Umbraco CMS
    • Run the project using F5
    Is this an issue for anyone else?

    Did you say YES to overwriting the web.config file? Try to Build the solution before hitting F5, F5 should build and then run the solution but maybe for some reason that didn't happen? Look at any build errors too.

    I finally figured it out. Dont call your MVC project Umbraco!

    I only figured this out beacuse i went to work and just created a project called test and it worked first time.
