And guess what. After my previous problems using this CMS (including .ascx files of yours not compiling despite all code being present) I get more problems.
I resolved the issue described at http://www.sitefinity.com/support/forums/sitefinity-3-x/developing-with-sitefinity/solution-not-compiling.aspx
(also experienced bya number of other users) by hiding the files, which prevents VS from "seeing" the files for compiling. All worked fine. Now, this morning, so very close to finishing working with this CMS, I now get:
Server Error in '/' Application.
Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.
Parser Error Message: The resource object with key 'ProjectName' was not found.

When I try to log in to the local dev site on my machine.
I tried re-"showing" the files in the /sitefinity folder by resetting the Hidden flag and this still fails.
This is beyond the pale. NOTHING HAS CHANGED from the Sitefinity 3.6 install within the /sitefinity folder. How can this happen? It's having serious impact on our deadlines and I'm seriously considering actively telling people to avoid this product.
It's a real shame, your other products are first class and I have been a subscriber of those for a number of years now both on a personal basis (at my own cost) and professionally through my employers.
