    Hello everyone,
    I am having trouble with a module that I am writing that is based on the Products module that comes with the SDK.  I was able to get the module installed and it shows up under the "Content" drop down list, but when I go to the module (called Promos) I get an error message:

    The ContentViewDefinition with name 'PromosBackend' does not exist in configuration files.
               You should either add the ContentViewDefiniton with such name to the configuration;
               change ControlDefinitionName or load ControlDefinition programatically by setting
               the ControlDefinition property.

    I can't seem to find out why this error message is showing up.  Everything between the Products module and my Promos module are similar.  Can I please get some information about why this is happening?

    Thank you,

    Hi Rushman,

    Can you, please, check in App_data->Sitefinity->Configurations->ContentViewConfig.config if you have a line referencing your module? This is a strange issue, as the module is showing up in the Content section. Have you followed correctly the procedures for installing the module,especially point 10: In the StartupType field, enter OnApplicationStart.
