    Hello Johnson,

    This is quite easy actually. All you need to do is copy the bin and the Sitefinity folder from the Standard edition installation to your project created with the Community edition. You can copy them form the following location if you haven’t changed the default installation settings and your system drive is C:
    C:\Program Files\telerik\Sitefinity3.1\ProjectManager\EmptyProject.


    Kind regards,

    Hi Daniel L,

    This exception occurs because there are several additional features in the Standard Edition which are not defined in the old web.config. Please start from the beginning once again but this time follow the steps bellow:
    1. Create new project with Sitefinity 3.1 Standard;
    2. Copy the files and folders from the Community web site (without bin and Sitefinity folder) and paste them in the new project (do not replace the existing files);
    3. Copy all changes made to the web.config (if any) to the web.config of the new project.

    Hope the provided information is helpful.

    Greetings,
