    Installing v8.0.0

    Not a question, more like a solution.

    Version 8 runs on .NET Framework 4.7.2, which I now know is clearly shown in the requirements.

    If you get the error below, it's because you created a project in VS2017 targetting the wrong framework.

    Server Error in '/' Application.
    Parser Error 
    Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately. 
    Parser Error Message: Could not load type 'Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication'.
    Source Error: 
    Line 1:  <%@ Application Inherits="Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication" Language="C#" %>
    Source File:  /global.asax    Line:  1 

    Targetting the right framework also sorted out the issue below:

    Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.CodeDom.Providers.DotNetCompilerPlatform,Version=, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly's reference

    Now that the site has loaded, it's time to give version 8 a trial run.

    Wish me luck ...
