    Error when updating to 3.0.26

    I just tried to update from contour 3.0.21 to the latest 3.0.26. Using Umbraco 6.2.1

    Downloaded the zip Contour_3.0.26_update.zip from here: https://our.umbraco.org/projects/umbraco-pro/contour

    Followed these instructions: https://our.umbraco.org/projects/umbraco-pro/contour/documentation/Installation/Upgrade

    Basically all I did was unzip the zip file into my umbraco folder (afte rmaking a backup!).

    I get this error when going to the Contour tab:

    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Hi Karen

    Did you also do the last two steps? Have you visited the mysite.com/umbraco/plugins/umbracocontour/upgrade.aspx url? (Remember to change to your hostname) and then cleared the browser cache as well as described?

    Hi Jan,

    I did clear cache on the browser, and that fixed nothing - even tried in a new browser that I never use to log in to the UI with.

    I had not originally run the upgrade script since the instructions state "This only applies when moving from a 1.x version to a 3.x version", however at your suggestion I did run it. Still getting the same error message posted above.

    Ok, I realize the problem, sort of, but not sure how to fix it.

    I have my umbraco project as a Visual Studio project, so all the umbraco .dlls are in a references folder, and included as References in the project, so when I do a build on the project, the .dll files should be copied to the bin folder. (otherwise sometimes they get deleted by visual studio)

    The Umbraco.Forms.Core.Providers.V6.dll is not being copied to the bin folder. When I manually put the new v6.dll file in bin, everything works.

    I checked, and it is included as a Reference in my project.  I even removed and re-added all the Contour .dll files from the references. I can see it in the list. Tried closing VS and reopening the project.

    When I try to add a @using statment to a page, the V6.dll version is not found by the intellisense (but it sees V7)

    This used to work, that is how I have been building this project. If I put the old V6.dll back into my references folder, and rebuild, it gets copied to the bin.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Karen,

    Perhaps this documentation https://our.umbraco.org/wiki/how-tos/getting-started-with-umbraco-what-is-next-after-you-install/setting-up-your-project-in-visual-studio can help you. I know is a bit old, but maybe it can gives you some idea what you need to do.

    Sebastiaan has also made documentation about how to run Umbraco using Visual Studio https://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/umbraco-visual-studio-project

    Hope this can help you.

    /Dennis

    And this might be the reason - I need to build my project in .net 4 because our servers only have 4.0

    Is it possible to get a contour package built on 4.0 ?

     

    Warning4The primary reference "Umbraco.Forms.Core.Providers.V6, Version=3.0.21.0, Culture=neutral, processorArchitecture=MSIL" could not be resolved because it was built against the ".NETFramework,Version=v4.5" framework. This is a higher version than the currently targeted framework ".NETFramework,Version=v4.0".WHRX

    ps - I need to update contour to the new version because of the bug where the file upload while in IE includes the full path. We have to have file uploads on our forms and a lot of our clients use IE.

    HI Dennis - Thanks for the suggestions - but those articles are pretty old and older versions of umbraco and vs, and we have been packaging up our Umbraco projects this way for many years with no issues until now, so I am thinking the issue might be with the new .dll rather than with the project setup.

    I have just met the same problem and spent a lot of time to find reason...

    What is the last solution for this problem?

    I'm upgrading Umbraco from 4.7.1 to 6.2.6.

    Hi Wtct,

    Well I can't remember exactly what I did to remove this error. There was a lot of things I tried, and a year ago a lot of things going on! What I do remember trying is removing any references to Umbraco.Forms.Core.Providers.V7

    Also I have a vague recollection of deciding the error was newly introduced, and that by stepping back through versions of the contour zip and testing different versions of the Umbraco.Forms.Core.Providers.V6.dll until I found one that did not cause an error.

    I THINK that is what fixed it - I am not 100%. But maybe something you can try ? Looking at the version of the V6.dll i am using, it is 3.0.19 while all the other .dlls for Contour have version 3.0.28

    Thanks a lot!

    It is good temporary solution. Umbraco Contour is probably working good.

    I have just started new topic:

    https://our.umbraco.org/forum/umbraco-forms//77131-upgrading-umbraco-contour-to-3029-in-umbraco-626-umbracoformscoreprovidersv6dll-problem

    I hope that someone compile this dll in 4.0.
