Just installed latest version. I just finished the Create Forum Screen and hit Finish.

It redirected me to the home page (root) and I get the infamous Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Here is the strack trace.:cry:

Thank you.
Did you sit on that page so long that your credentials expired? If you log back in, are your forums there? If you do it again, does it happen again?

When I post fp:mddubs in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Mek 🙂, who stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

Fixed below. I opened VS 2008 on the server. Got the message to convert from 2.0. Said Yes. All works now.

Thank you for your quick reply. I would really love to get this forum up and working for my user group so I appreciate your help.

I'm getting the error message now when I navigate to the main page.


The control with ID '' requires a ScriptManager on the page. The ScriptManager must appear before any controls that need it.

It looks like that all database objects were created and I did run through the wizard so I think IIS is correct and the database connection is correct.
