Challenges While Upgrading EPIServer 7.11 To EPIServer 8.10



This is Arjun Katkojwala from CGI. We have integrated EPI Server 7.5 (7.11) Version to our applications. But due to some issues, we are planning to upgrade to latest version. But instead of direclty upgrading from EPI 7 to EPI 11 direclty, we are doing version by version. Intially, using NUGET packages i have upgraded to EPI 8.10 from EPI 7.11. After upgrading to 8.10 using nuget packages, all the config files were updated. i have deployed those changes into our Dev Server Environment. While loading the site from IIS, am getting below Error. Can any one will help me in solving this issue

Could it be that you are using some thirdparty module/assembly that does not have been updgraded to a CMS 8 compliant version?
