    Setup Visual Studio for Existing Umbraco Site from repo on new development machine

    I have an umbraco site (v8) developed on another machine, in Visual Studio 2017. On the old machine I have usync & usync content installed.

    The site was running fine.

    Usync has been used to export the site and everything has been committed to a git repo.

    On my new laptop I have cloned the repo so have the code, including usync folder.

    I have created a new SQL server database named the same and created a user on that database with the same user.

    Web.config connection string is set (local host).

    When I CTRL+F5 to run the site from visual studio I get:

    Umbraco.Core.Exceptions.BootFailedException: Could not check the upgrade state.

    How do I get the site running locally on the new laptop? Do I need to backup / restore the database from my old machine?

    I was hoping I could get umbraco running and use usync to get everything back inline?

    If Umbraco finds a connectionstring in the web.config it will assume a database and schema are setup. So remove the connectionstring, run the site and the install page should show up.
