    I am trying to add MVC 4 features to my Sitefinity Web App (v. 7.1).

    In order to do that, I have had to do the following:

    1) Add references to EntityFramework

    2) Add references to System.Web.Optimization via NuGet

    3) Upgrade project to .NET v. 4.5

    4) Upgrade the Web.config and add appSettings elements such as UnobtrusiveValidation

    I then used Sitefinity Thunder to add an MVC Widget to the project.  I was able to compile my solution but as soon as I attempted to run the Sitefinity Administrative backend, everything was broken.  I could not access any of the Pages to create a new Content Page in order to add my MVC Widget.

    I regularly develop with ASP.NET MVC in standalone projects so I am not sure how to deploy all of the code that I normally develop into a standard MVC 4 or MVC 5 Sitefinity Widget.

    Please advise.
