    I'm just checking you are continuing to have the migration module in the latest Sitefinity versions. I ran a test migration when 6.2 was out but now we are ready to do this project and I wanted to check before I overwrite it with 7.

     Thanks!

    Hello Sharon,

    The migration module is still available, but note that since version 7 of Sitefinity you should install the module in order to use it. You can find it in the current menu path - Administration -> Modules & Services

    I have Sitefinity 7 installed now. When I try to set my 3.7 project for migration I am getting "Installation package for the build version of the specified SF3.7 project is missing". I had run this successfully on another server with version 6.2. Can I just copy the files over from that version?

    Hello Sharon,

    Could you please verify your 3.7 project is running on SP4 and .NET 4 and under IIS and it is standard edition? The steps you need to take in order to upgrade your 3.7 solution to SP4 are described in our Documentation. Please complete them and then you can proceed to migrate your solution successfully. Complete steps necessary to be done to migrate the 3.7 Project to 7.0 can be found here.

    My old site is 3.7sp4 .Net 4 standard edition.  

    I found I was missing the Module3.7_SP4_NET40.zip file in Sitefinity 7.0  I manually copied that file from the copy provided with Sitefinity 6.2 and followed the directions for manually setting up for migration published at http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/installation-and-administration-guide/migrating-your-sitefinity-3-7-project/manual-migration-setup

    Then I was able to run the migration module. Thanks!

    Thanks. At this point I can run the Migration Module. This website has a very, very long way to go before it is migrated successfully.
