    Could not load type 'Umbraco.Web.UmbracoApplication'.

    I can't get a new copy of Umbraco 8 to run. I have installed it via Nuget and I have .NET 4.7.2 installed. This whole process of going from v7 to 8 seems to be a real pain in the you know what. Come on Umbraco devs, please get it together so we can compete against wordpress installations!

    Can you be more specific as to what doesn't run.

    v8 is a huge change from v7 and you're very welcome to stick with v7 for a while, there's no need to go to v8 if it doesn't work for you yet. Let other people be the trailblazers on the latest bleeding edge and come back to v8 later when you feel more comfortable, we'll happily welcome you back at that point! 👍

    I had attached an image, but I don't think it came through. I have installed a clean copy of Umbraco V8 via nuget, built the application without error and pressed

    Hmm, I think you named your solution and/or project Umbraco - it needs to be named something else. :-)

    Ps. that wouldn't have worked in v7 either 😉.

    My project and solution are called targetXXX, so that is not the issue.

    Strange, that's usually the only reason this error comes up. Can you try again and follow each step in this guide carefully please?

    Make sure your Visual Studio is updated to the newest version. Ran into the same error first time I installed V8 and the VS update solved it.

    @Thomsen, your solution worked.

    Thanks.
