    Courier crashing on Umbraco v6 as it cannot find the default database provider

    Anyone have any idea what's going on here? 

    "Could not find the default database provider, please ensure you have all the required DLL's in /bin, and that courier loaded successfully"

    {Umbraco.Courier.Core.ProviderException: Could not find the default database provider, please ensure you have all the required DLL's in /bin, and that courier loaded successfully. To debug, turn on debugmode in /config/courier.confg, and examine the /app_data/courier/logs error log files
       at Umbraco.Courier.Core.PersistenceManager.get_Default()
       at Umbraco.Courier.Core.ItemProvider.get_DatabasePersistence()
       at Umbraco.Courier.ItemProviders.DocumentItemProvider.AvailableSystemItems()
       at Umbraco.Courier.UI.Webservices.TreeData.ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
       at System.Web.HttpApplication.CallHandlerExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication.IExecutionStep.Execute()
       at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)}

    I have this with both Courier_2.7.8.35.v6 and Courier_2.7.8.43.v6. The frustrating thing is that last week before I rebuilt the installation I had this working with only occasional crashes. It would sort itself out if you forced it to reload everything with a web.config change. Now it just stays broken whatever I try. 

    Is this a known issue? 

    And no, there's nothing useful in the debug file.

    @Ben 

    According to the error message you are actually missing some files.  Download the hotfix for the version you are using and compare with what you have in your site's /bin/ folder...adding any that are missing.

    Hi Ben,

    I am having this exact issue and I have tried everyhting including decompiling and debugging Courier and I cannot understand why it cannot load the provider. Did you get any further with this?

    @Ed

    In the past this has proven to be due to missing and/or mis-matched files in your site's /bin/ folder.  So grab the 2.7.8.2.v6 hotfix from https://our.umbraco.org/projects/umbraco-pro/umbraco-courier-2 and compare the files making sure you have exactly the same and no additional *courier* files.

    @ed no we decided that v6 wasn't fit for purpose. This kind of thing needs to be bullet proof or it's useless. We had no faith in it at all. Want to have to check every part of every publish? Thought not. Apparently v7 is much much better. We have that deployed in a limited capacity, and it's done well so far.

    We have an RC for the latest v7 ready http://nightly.umbraco.org/UmbracoCourier/Umbraco%207/Release/  Feedback so far has been that this is running very stable and addesses open issues.
