    I am using sitefinity 4.4 and have no problem uploading txt files, images, and doc/docx files.  But when I try ti upload pdfs it freaks out.  Rather, it sits and sits and sits and eventually gives me an error:


    Arguments: NotFound

    Debugging resource strings are unavailable. Often the key and arguments provide sufficient information to diagnose the problem. See

    When you go to that URL, the microsoft site says The definition of the resource ID could not be found.

    I've tried big pdfs small pdfs, changing the extention of the pdf to .txt, converting the pdf to an rtf file, using different browsers, nothing works.  it won't let me upload pdfs or docs that contain the content from those pdfs.

    Hi Robert,

    If you are running the site on IIS, you can check the following article and make all necessary changes to the webconfig:

    Also can you try to replicate the issue using Visual Studio and tell us whether you experience the same error.

    All the best,
