    I've tried installing each version of Umbraco from 7.2.6 to 7.3.1 and they all have this error:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Compilation Error

    Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.

    I'm hosting on GoDaddy with ASP.NET 4.5 Framework. I suspect it might be the example package I'm using? Why is something using Microsoft.Web.Helpers which is so old, when it should be using System.Web.Helpers? I've looked everywhere, even in the umbraco source code and I can't find ANYTHING with this actual code snippet in it using the old library. I've replaced .dll files with the binary files from each release. What the heck?

    Look to see if microsoft.web.helpers.dll is in your \bin folder. It was removed in v7.3.0 and broke my old partial view scripts which expected the file.
