Problems when configuring and using 404handler module from coderesort



Some days ago i downloaded and installed the 404handler module for CMS 6, IIS 7, from I have followed the documentation available on coderesort and configured the module accordingly. However when i run the site I get an error because the assembly "BVNetwork.FileNotFound.RedirectGadget" is missing, and when i checked the bin folder I confirmed that only BVNetwork.EPi404.dll is copied there.
Can anybody point me in the right direction to fix this error and get the module working?

Not sure why the .dll wasn't copied on install but you could try the following:

BVN.404Handler.cms6.iis7.epimodule is a zip folder, so open it with winrar or any other program, and then go to the bin folder of the archive and extract the BVNetwork.FileNotFound.RedirectGadget.dll. Once extracted put it in the bin-folder of your site.

Well i had already done that, but with no success 'cause the DLL doesn't exist on the zip installer. The only two files contained in it are BVNetwork.EPi404.dll and BVNetwork.EPi404.pdb. My installers name however is 404Handler.1.2.epimodule, not BVN.404Handler.cms6.iis7.epimodule like the one you mention. Maybe i don't have the right one? if so, where can i get it from? 'cause i downloaded this one from the project page on coderesort.
Thanks for your time and help,

I tried downloading it from this page and I see the dll:

Choose "Module install package for EPiServer Deployment Center".

Strange, it seems i had downloaded a complete different file. Well, but i see the DLL now, thanks!

I have installed BVN.404Handler on an CMS 6 project which runs on IIS 7 and .Net Framework v4.0. I get the error when I start the project in VS2010

1) The export 'BVNetwork.FileNotFound.CustomRedirects.CustomRedirectInitialization (ContractName="EPiServer.Framework.IInitializableModule")' is not assignable to type 'EPiServer.Framework.IInitializableModule'.

Resulting in: Cannot set import 'EPiServer.Framework.Initialization.InitializationEngine.Modules (ContractName="EPiServer.Framework.IInitializableModule")' on part 'EPiServer.Framework.Initialization.InitializationEngine'.
Element: EPiServer.Framework.Initialization.InitializationEngine.Modules (ContractName="EPiServer.Framework.IInitializableModule") -->  EPiServer.Framework.Initialization.InitializationEngine

I have done the workaround under, in the step 6 it points to right "CMS's dll" for System.ComponentModel.Composition.dll. The dll which has been installed on my PC, has the product version 2009.22.10.0. I am not sure whether it is right DLL.

I appreciate any pointers.
