    Entire site stopped working when i uninstalled

    I just installed Contour, since it didn't work as supposed. But now the entire site stopped working.

    Could not load file or assembly 'Umbraco.Forms.CodeFirst' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    So it removed a dependency, but not the references to it? How do i solve this?

    I was able to get rid of that message by removing all references to the library from web.config (why isn't that done automaticly on uninstallation of contour?), but now i got a new one instead.

    Could not load file or assembly 'Umbraco.Forms.References, Version=1.0.10920.32880, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    I can't find any more references to Umbraco.Forms in web.config. What to do?

    Some creative Googling and i was able to solve it. Apparently the Umbraco.Forms.Core.dll hadn't been removed from the bin-folder, by doing so it all works fine again.

    Thanks, I was about to have a panic attack. removing references from web.config and manually removing the dll from bin did the trick.

    I found that there were 2 references to Umbraco.Forms.CodeFirst in the web.config that needed to be removed. That fixed it for me.

    This post was a life saver. Contour is a paid for package, it should be a higher quality than the rest and therefore should have a clean uninstall system. It left all sorts of stuff behind in my 6.1.5 build.

    Yes jsut had the same problem.  I got an error when installing Contour (sorry didn't copy it, as the error went away when I reloaded the page), it didnt' show up anywhere (I am completely new to Contour but any guides I followed suggested it should up in the bottlem left tabs (http://umbraco.com/follow-us/blog-archive/2012/11/9/getting-started-with-contour-30-beta.aspx) but it didn't.

    So I uninstalled, and entire site crashed.

    Luckily found this post - thank you.

    (just deleting it from web.config worked)

    Also remove any other contour.dll and Pandemicode.Umbraco.Extensions.dll from /bin. (Pandemicode is a Razor plug-in for Contour.)

    For others who run into this, I just got this error after uninstalling Contour 3.0.27 from an Umbraco 7.2.4 install (currently, the latest version of each). I was able to fix it by deleting two lines in the web.config that I found by searching "Umbraco.Forms".

    I was trialling it on version 743 of umbraco and hit the same problem when I uninstalled it.

    This post has saved me loads of headache.

    Many thanks!
