VPP Migration tool


I'm trying to migrate a vpp with the migration tool.

My site is in version of EPiServer 7.7:

I get this error when trying to connect my site in the migration tool:

Could not load file or assembly 'EPiServer.Packaging, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fe83dea738b45b7' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

Is there any solution to migrate a vpp to a EPiServer 7.7 site?

I have all the media types defined.

Is your site working? It looks like you're having some old assemblies (EPiServer.Packaging at least) in bin or modulesbin. VPP Migration tool requires that the site is up and running. You might want to compile your project after updating nuget packages to get new aseemblies copied to bin folder.
