    Error while installing example site

    When I try to install the example site in a fresh umbraco 7.1.3 instance with Merchello, I get this error:

    Could not upload file System.Exception: Error unpacking extension... ---> System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\inetpub\sites\umbraco\App_Data\adf1f74e-d51d-4671-9fae-297e31c5b1bb\msvcr90.dll' or one of its dependencies. The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest. [...yadda...]

    Merchello itself installed just fine.

    Has anyone a hint for me?

    Hi Christian,

    The example site is a site build not a package or a starter kit. You should be able to simply unzip the archive and run it in IIS Express.

    Originally I had the in the documentation tab to avoid this confusion, but received feedback that some people thought it ought to go in the package files section. I think for the next version I'll move back.

    Sorry about the confusion.

    Ouch! You're so right, it's not a package. Shame on me. :)
