    Hello Dipesh,

    In order to troubleshoot this issue I would like to kindly ask you to try re-installing Module builder. To make this please open SystemConfig.config, then remove the version number and restart the application:
    <add name="ModuleBuilder" />

    You can restart your project by re-saving web.config or recycling application pool.

    Regards, Vassil Vassilev
