    imagegen not installing correctly on 4.7

    Ive encountered a problem on my last 2 installs of imagegen on 4.7. on 2 different sites

    When imagegen installs, it stops on the page where it says "restarting the app pool". It doesnt go further.

    Upon further expection it turns out it hasnt installed imagegen.ashx in /umbraco.

    When i manually copy the file, everything seems to work...

    Can anyone confirm this behavior?

    Perhaps not ideally, the "restarting the app pool" message happens as the very last step of installation. There's nothing wrong; just a note that the next click to your site is going to be slow while the app pool restarts (because the web.config was updated).

    Also, ImageGen 2.5 has a change - the imagegen.ashx file is put in the root of the site rather than in the /umbraco folder. So no error there, just a change. It makes your urls shorter and makes it easier to upgrade your /umbraco folder with umbraco upgrades.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    It sure does :). Didnt think of that, i just reused some xslt and found that the file was missing in /umbraco/ :). Thanks for clearing it up.
