    Error: A route named 'umbraco-surface-UmbProfile' is already in the route collection

    Hi,

    For about a week now I've been getting a strange error that keeps popping up randomly:

    I've checked my App_Code folder and it's empty and no other routes have been created that match what is stated in this error.

    Using Umbraco 7.3.3.

    Anyone experience or come across this? It's getting quite annoying now and I can't reproduce it at will, it just seems to happen at random moments.

    Thanks, B.

    Just some additional info to add:

    To get my site working again I have to recompile the site in Visual Studio. Doing an app pool recycle or iisreset doesn't work.

    I've also made sure I've deleted all the DLL's in the bin folder and done a fresh compile. Seems to be OK for a while until the error crops up again at a random time.

    I've installed RouteDebugger and this doesn't report anything unusual. The route 'umbraco/surface/UmbProfile' only appears once.

    is the reference to umbraco-surface-UmbProfile being called somewhere else..

    I can't see it referenced anywhere, not that I can see anyway. The site used to work fine before and not a lot of development (backend) work has been done on the site since the last month.

    The only major thing that has happened on the site is an upgrade, 7.3.2 -> 7.3.3.

    weird.. you may need to have a look to see if anything has changed in the upgrade with regard to routing that is causing your issue..

    is the error occurring when you do a specific set of actions or generating an overall error you can't relate to a bunch of tasks?

    Hmmm it could be something to do with the upgrade. Reason I say that is I'm able to recreate the error consistently now by installing a package via the backoffice - I've tried on 4 different packages and when does the final install the site bombs out and display the error.

    bijesh,

    I recall seeing this before. From what i can remember i think it was inherited site and that was in the vs sln referencing umbraco dlls from a folder. The upgrade was done using nuget and some dlls refs got messed up.

    Check all your references also how was the upgrade done? Also try clean build then build.

    Regards

    Ismail

    Ah ok, another thing worth looking at.

    I upgraded using NuGet, so could be an issue with DLL refs as you mentioned.

    I've done a clean build, even deleting the bin & obj folders - still the same issue.

    Thanks!

    Came across this while trying to solve the same issue.

    For me it was caused by a change in namespace at the project level. This left two versions of the same DLLs in the /bin folder which even the project clean didn't remove, so it meant the same start-up code was running twice. Removing the old DLLs resolved it for me. Appreciate it didn't solve the above problem, but could point others in the right direction.

    Cheers! Similar cause and solution with my case.

    I renamed the project and simply build-and-run, then it throws similar error. I found the {old-project-name}.dll was still in the \bin directory even I clean the project & solution. I need to manually delete the {old-project-name}.dll, then it works!

    Cheers for the help!

    In my case I had a branch in my gitrepo and since we don't track the bin-folder there was some DLLs there from another version of Umbraco.

    Cleaning the solution and/or "Rebuild" did not remove all the dlls so manually making sure that the bin-folder was empty and then build did the trick for me.
