VPP Migration Tool issues

Vote:
 

Hi,

I am upgrading from 7.1 to 7.5 CMS version,
I am facing issues while running the VPP Migration tool utility. I have made sure to add Media folder which includes three cs files

GenericMedia.cs
ImageFile.cs
VideoFile.cs

When I run the tool, and connect it to my website, after sometime, it generates the following error.

Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

I will appreciate a quick response.

Hi,

You need to make sure your site is running before trying VPP Migration tool.

From the exception:

Could not load type 'Sigma.CitizensAdvice.Web.Business.HTMLRewrite.LinkHTMLRewriterConfigSection' from assembly 'System.Configuration, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'.

It looks like there is a misconfiguration somewhere in your web.config. Check if there's any mention to LinkHTMLRewriter/LinkHTMLRewriterConfigSection in it.

Regards.

Hi Quan,

I commented out that code from the initialisation module, and the VPP worked, thanks very much. Though, i am not sure why this was creating an issue.
Another issue, but I will create a new thread as it is related to Gadgets.

Cheers,

Naz
