    Has anyone encountered this error when upgrading from 4.3 to 5.0?
    Basically, my image gallery images are not showing up. I can upload images, but they appear as X both in the back end and the site. If you go to an image direct link, you get the error.

    Here's what I've done so far:
     Upgrade notes:

    • Had to change all SBT tables to dbo schema.
    • Worked on Hermes.
    • Started upgrade. Failed. Restored. Tried again. Failed.
    • Copied in new dlls from Bin in 5.0 empty project. 
    • Added backward compatibility support for existing modules. 
    • ...
    •    <runtime>
              <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
                      <assemblyIdentity name="Telerik.Sitefinity" publicKeyToken="b28c218413bdf563" culture="neutral"/>
                      <bindingRedirect oldVersion="4.4.2117.0" newVersion="5.0.2860.0" />
                      <assemblyIdentity name="Telerik.Sitefinity.Model" publicKeyToken="b28c218413bdf563" culture="neutral"/>
                      <bindingRedirect oldVersion="4.4.2117.0" newVersion="5.0.2860.0" />
                      <assemblyIdentity name="Telerik.Sitefinity.Utilities" publicKeyToken="b28c218413bdf563" culture="neutral"/>
                      <bindingRedirect oldVersion="4.4.2117.0" newVersion="5.0.2860.0" />

                      <assemblyIdentity name="Telerik.Web.UI" publicKeyToken="121fae78165ba3d4" culture="neutral"/>
                      <bindingRedirect oldVersion="2011.3.1115.40" newVersion="2012.1.215.40"/>

    • Front end started working, back end gave object not set to instance error.
    • Added backward support for Forms auth in the security config file:
    • <securityConfig xmlns:config="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration" xmlns:type="urn:telerik:sitefinity:configuration:type" config:version="5.0.2860.0" authCookieName=".SFAUTH-StoneBond" rolesCookieName=".SFROLES-StoneBond" validationKey="6A1C5807FB26B1DBCFB580F2AD341DACC26CFBC5563B339531F1970D51EDC7FC415713FF91AF7EDE7BCC767C66F0834859072052C6C42685CBDDEFAD5850194D" decryptionKey="767F100C657B1CE4B2D42E071304B755E76EB50A8FD2297A6D528DE7669694BD" loggingCookieName=".SFLOG-StoneBond" authenticationMode="Forms">
    • Reference: 
    • Front end and back end works - but login button is missing. If I go directly to login page, it redirects me to /hermes/
    • Had Dan reconfigure site to run in it's own space on web server to fix the '/' issues. Login now works fine. 
    • Images from galleries not showing up. I can upload images, but they appear as X both in the back end and the site. If you go to an image direct link, you get this error: 

      Method not found: 'Void Telerik.Sitefinity.Security.SitefinityPrincipal..ctor(System.Security.Principal.IIdentity)'.

    • Opening support ticket with Sitefinity.
    • Sitefinity requested we add a few lines to the web.congif. No change.
