    Problems installing contour

    I have an Umbraco 6.1.6 site that is running Contour 3.0.26. I recently upgraded the site to Umbraco 6.2.5 and when I did that I missed that some of the Contour config changes had been lost.

    To fix this I thought I'd just install Contour and then re-install it. I've tried installing both Contour 3.0.26 and 3.0.27 and with either version I get the following error during install:

    Umbraco Contour Installer encountered some errors
    Installed the database
    Datatype could not be installed + 
    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Umbraco.Forms.UI.Usercontrols.Installer.Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e) in f:\TeamCity\buildAgent\work\fd622d7f786e1305\Umbraco.Forms.UI\Usercontrols\Installer.ascx.cs:line 62
    Updated /umbraco/config/create/ui.xml
    Added dashboard to Contour application
    Updated web.config to use correct ajax assemblies
    Addded Formpicker macro control
    Updated english language file with Contour keys

    Does anybody have any ideas?

    So it's only the datatype that couldn't be installed? It's easy to add that manually, just go to the dev section, datatypes bit and create a new datatype, then select form picker as the render control

    Thanks. Is there anything in particular that I need to call the data type?

    By default it's called insert form but you can choose ...

    I've updated the tree.config to the new format and all seems to be working without adding this, thanks.
