    Hi,
    I am trying to migrate my CMS apps 3.7 SP3 to latest version. I went to site and download 4.2 (Sitefinity_4.2.1733.0) and Used this installation guide. At step #6, when I clicked on "Migrate your site from Sitefinity 3.7 to the newest version" link I got an error (see Error1 attachment). Then I check application folder, and I found no http://....../Sitefinity/Administration/Migration folder or path.

    Then I try the application path http://......./Sitefinity/Services/Migration, I got folder/file info (see Info Page attachment)

    Again, I try http://...../Sitefinity/Migration/Migration.svc, I got this error (see Error2 attachment)

    Did I miss any steps or download a wrong version?

    Please help!

    Thanks,

    Hi Nk,

    The errors you get

    The error states that the system cannot find specified assembly. The problem may have come if you hit the Rebuild action instead of Build. During the rebuild action the references are cleared therefore you get this specific error. After you have properly set Sitefinity 4.2 SP1 on your machine, please make sure to copy the following code before the closing configuration tag:

    <system.serviceModel>
        <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true">
        </serviceHostingEnvironment>
        <bindings>
          <webHttpBinding>
            <binding name="default" ></binding>
          </webHttpBinding>
          <basicHttpBinding>
            <binding name="basicHttpBinding" maxReceivedMessageSize="2147483647" maxBufferSize="2147483647">
              <readerQuotas maxStringContentLength="2147483647" maxArrayLength="2147483647"/>
              <security mode="None"/>
            </binding>
          </basicHttpBinding>
        </bindings>
        <behaviors>
          <endpointBehaviors>
            <behavior name="webby">
              <webHttp />
              <dataContractSerializer maxItemsInObjectGraph="2147483" />
            </behavior>
          </endpointBehaviors>
          <serviceBehaviors>
            <behavior name="Telerik.Sitefinity.Migration.MigrationServiceBehavior">
              <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
              <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />
                  <dataContractSerializer maxItemsInObjectGraph="2147483" />
            </behavior>
            <behavior name="webby">
              <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
              <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
                  <dataContractSerializer maxItemsInObjectGraph="2147483" />
            </behavior>
          </serviceBehaviors>
        </behaviors>
        <services>
          <service behaviorConfiguration="Telerik.Sitefinity.Migration.MigrationServiceBehavior"
            name="Telerik.Sitefinity.Migration.MigrationService">
            <endpoint address="" binding="basicHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="basicHttpBinding"
              contract="Telerik.Sitefinity.Migration.IMigrationService" />
            <endpoint address="rest" behaviorConfiguration="webby" binding="webHttpBinding"
              contract="Telerik.Sitefinity.Migration.IMigrationService" />
          </service>
          <service behaviorConfiguration="Telerik.Sitefinity.Migration.MigrationServiceBehavior"
            name="Service">
            <endpoint address="" behaviorConfiguration="webby" binding="webHttpBinding"
              contract="IService" />
          </service>
        </services>
      </system.serviceModel>

    However when you migrate your website to SP4 .NET 4 you need to apply the patch that is provided in your downloads section. Please check the attached screenshot.

    Please check the installation guide here: http://www.sitefinity.com/resources/migration-guide.aspx as we have updated it to match the changes made in the 4.2 SP1 release.

    Hi Nelson,

    Please contact our sales team so they can allow you access to the specific 3.x downloads page.
