    I am sure Telerik will get back with better suggestions, but this is what I would try if I were in your situation.

    1 - Do you have a back-up, if yes then you can restore to the back-up, if not then make sure you have a back-up.
    2 - Have you restarted the application completely from the WebServer?
    3 - What kind of errors, it would help if you posted the actual error message.
    4 - All the settings are XML files in the \App_Data\Sitefinity\Configuration folder. Not sure if it would work, but I would create a new project of the same version, and replace the the ListsConfig.config from the new project into your broken one.

    Make sure you make a back-up before you do anything, just in case it will make it worse.
    Sorry, that's all I can come up with.

    If you have restored the Settings configuration file, completely flushed the browser cache and restarted the WebApp from the Server (restart it just to make sure) and still it errors, then I can't think of anything else for now. In cases like this I then start thinking about restoring the database. Sorry. Perhaps @Telerik will respond soon.

    are you using the latest version? just wondering if it might be fixed in the latest release. i remember something about deleting or hiding fields that required. if you mark something as required then you get issues. it happened to me in teh news module. sorry i can't be of any further help.

    Hello Salma,

    All the configuration files for Lists are located in App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/
    ListsConfig
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendEdit
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendinsert
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendPreview
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendVersinPreview
    Make a backup of the config files before removing them and see if the issue will resolve. All custom field settings are stored in the config files.

    All the best,
    Stanislav Velikov

    but i did not find the following to delete them
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendEdit
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendinsert
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendPreview
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendVersinPreview

    and is still get the error messages. can telerik by some way provide me with the missing configuration files so that i would place them and reset the list settings.

    Hi Salma,

    If you are missing
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendEdit
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendinsert
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendPreview
    ListsConfig.contentViewControls.EventsBackend.views.EventsBackendVersinPreview
    That means there are no custom fields registered for lists(if I send you the configuration files for lists module with custom fields there might be a bigger problem or no result at all). Seeing you can`t access the settings for lists I am not sure what might have caused this. I have some suggestions please test them on a separate project.
    Remove all the assemblies in the bin folder and replace them with the assemblies from a blank project from the same Sitefinity version.

    If this doesn`t help can you open a support ticket and send me the project files and a backup of the database so I can inspect the issue in more detail at my end? If the files are too big to attach to the ticket please upload them to FTP and provide me with credentials.
    If in some case sending files is not possible can you give me temporary backend access to the site to inspect further?
