Trying to have a play around with Ver8 today and I`m having great difficulty in getting installed . It installs fine via Nuget but when I go to run it for the first time I get :
Parser Error Message: Could not load type 'Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication'.
Line 1: <%@ Application Inherits="Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication" Language="C#" %>
Source File: /global.asax Line: 1
I have done the trick of renaming the Namesapce and updated my Visual Studio to the latest version , Any ideas :(
Hi Julian, as per the system requirements you'll need at least Visual Studio 2017 (updated to at least version 15.9.6) for Umbraco 8 to install.
This error message will occur when you have a lower version of VS2017.
I have updated to 15.9.7 , same result .
One think I have noticed is that the install from nuget is very quick and I do not get the option to accept the licences for any extra packages that need installing
Just upgrading the visual studio version is not going to help for your existing solution, you'll need to start a new ASP.NET Webapplication project, based on .NET 4.7.2 with a completely blank template (don't choose MVC, WebAPI or anything else) and then install the UmbracoCms package.
Looks like there was an issue with my 4.7.2 , reinstalled and it works like a dream.
Yikes, that sounds annoying! How did you update it? Might be helpful for other people to know!
I modified the Visual Studio install and removed it from .Net desktop development , restarted and then re-added it .
I think that this will also allow you to repair/re-install .net 4.7.2 as well https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/thank-you/net472-developer-pack
