    I just upgraded my sites to 4.1 SP1.  After wading through the DLL reference issues cited elsewhere, I find that none of my backend css styles show up (see attached screen shot). 

    It looks like Sitefinity is encoding ampersands for XML when rendering WebReference querystrings:

    <link href="/SafeMeasuresInfo/Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd?compress=0&amp;_TSM_CombinedScripts_=%3b%3bTelerik.Sitefinity.Resources%2c+Version%3d4.1.1395.0%2c+Culture%3dneutral%2c+PublicKeyToken%3dnull%3aen-US%3ac3497b39-708d-486e-8f36-fdbdd2633cd0%3a5aa8d08c%3a62c62c5e%3ac0717fa6%3a4a3171e4" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />


    <script src="/SafeMeasuresInfo/ScriptResource.axd?d=qYTpYl4zSF00Oor0f3zGD4yBgAJ7PhaZ8j-9bC2je4eUGV6il_h0QTQKBVV5QyPMatV7FihzXhk3P7cZzFk60de9IoorpyxXaDTGTUiubirnC0uKAYbOs

    Of course, these don't show up in the error log, but others do.  For example:

    Type : System.Web.HttpException, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a
    Message : This is an invalid webresource request.
    Source : System.Web

       at System.Web.HttpApplication.CallHandlerExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication
       at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep

    Additional Info:

    TimeStamp : 5/17/2011 9:08:18 PM
    FullName : Telerik.Sitefinity.Utilities, Version=4.1.1395.0, Culture=neutral,

    Note that I have 2 sites with the same issue, and I get the same result whether I run this out of ProjectManager or VS2010.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello Tim,

    Generally there is no difference if you run the project through the PM or VS, because the web server is the same. Since this is something that affects the website globally possible reason could be some change to the web.config or the configurations (called "Settings" in the UI) saved inside App_Data/Sitefinity/Configurations
    Another reason could be some modifications to the script manager inside the master pages - backend and frontend. You can also monitor the web request with fiddler of firebug to see if there will be some more useful information.

    If you install a new project do you have these issues with it?
