Ektron upgrade from 8.6.1 to 9.1 “Reference.svcmap” error

I recently upgraded Ektron from v8.6.1 to v9.1 SP1. After the upgrade when I tried to view the website, or run the project in Visual Studio I got the following error:

Parser Error Message: Reference.svcmap: Could not load file or assembly 'Ektron.Cms.Contracts, Version=8.6.1.xx, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=559a2c4fa21e63be' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

After much headache and many long emails back and forth with Ektron Support, I finally found an article that got me headed in the right direction.

Follow the link above for screenshots and details.

The basics are:

  1. Edit your Web Reference.
  2. Go into the Advanced tab.
  3. Clear the “Reuse types in referenced assemblies” checkbox and OK.

BAND – Chris Bowen, Windows Azure and VS 2010

The February BAND gig is next Tuesday (Feb 23) at 6:00 pm, in the Libra Conference Room at Husson University in Bangor! Come hear Chris Bowen, our Microsoft developer evangelist, speak on Windows Azure and what’s new in Visual Studio 2010/.NET 4! He will be giving full hour presentations on each so you are sure to come away with lots of knowledge and understanding of where these new technologies can be used in your development projects.

As always the meetings are free, and we just ask for a $3 donation if you want to have pizza and soda. We hope to go out with Chris afterwards so you can hang out with him, ask questions, or just have a fun time with other developers.

Description: Chris Bowen from Microsoft will be joining us to talk about Windows Azure and Visual Studio 2010/.NET 4! Come see what these new technologies will do for your development projects. Windows Azure: What? Why? And a Peek Under the Hood — What is Cloud Computing and where can it take you? In this session, Chris will first focus on showing the potential benefits of creating applications for the cloud with Windows Azure. Then, we’ll pop open the hood to show you around the main parts of the engine, including web roles, worker roles, and queues. You’ll see how Windows Azure plugs in for interoperability with other on-premises and cloud applications via the App Fabric. You’ll also learn how Windows Azure can be used to host technologies other than .NET – such as Java and PHP – and get a glimpse into what’s coming next with project “Sydney” and the integration of Windows Workflow into the cloud. Visual Studio 2010: That’s a 10-4, Good Buddy — There’s a buzz in the air as Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 are arriving soon, and they’re bringing plenty of cargo that developers will enjoy, from new features to improved productivity. We’ll hop on and take a tour, giving you the lay of the land in terms of what will help you as a developer. The sights will include parallel application development, new editor features and debugging capabilities (including a new historical debugger), improvements for web and Windows development, new .NET language features, and much more.
