    So I've followed the directions in the documentation to create a custom module, except I've created a "Customers" module instead of a JobApplication (renaming where needed).  However when I add the module and then try to access the Content-> Customers screen I get the error below. 

    One thing that stands out. My module is "Customers" the Assembly properties are set to "Customers" the .dll is "Customers.dll" (note: all plural) but the error is referencing "Customer" (singular). huh?  

    I could use help figuring out why it has a different name, and where is this controlled. So I can double check the code and get the reference correct. 

    thanks,

    Hello Mike,

    It seems that somewhere in your code you have referenced to Customer instead of Customers. Can you provide me with screenshots of the following:

    1. The registered module in the backend settings.
    2. The module.cs namespace
    3. The module structure and files.

    All the best,

    Victor,
    I'm attaching a screen shot from the admin.  And you can download the source for the module from here, hopefully you can see the issues with these. (I wasn't allowed to upload with this post).

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7372735/customersModule.zip

    And to answer #2 the namespace is "Customers". 

    Thanks for helping me debug this, I have no idea what to try next.

    Hi Mike,

    I was able to setup your module. There are few notes I would like to make:

    1. Make sure you clear and rebuild your project. If the system says you are missing an assembly or file it is probably because it is not added to Sitefinity or it is not in the bin folder.

    2. You need to enhance your project. Please replace your Customer.csproj with the one from the archive.

    3. Also you need to change the webservice path to look like the one from the screenshot.

    Do not forget to leave the version field empty when registering the module.

    Greetings,

    I'm trying this now, thanks for looking into it. However a quick comment on #1

    > 1. Make sure you clear and rebuild your project. If the system says you are missing an assembly or file it is probably because it is not added to Sitefinity or it is not in the bin folder.

    I have now fixed the project so I can clean it. However I had originally created the project with the sitefinity project manager and the way it sets up the project you can't run clean/rebuild - it has references linked to the dll's in /bin which clean deletes. I'm sure this is a known bug but wanted to mention just in case.
