Hi, i am creating a new install of YAF, with VWD, and integrating into my site.

It works, i am able to build the site, but when i go to /install/

Enter the new installation password, then second step where it says "Initialize/Upgrade Database" i click next, and straight away i get this error:

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

Could someone please tell me what this means,so i can continue with the installation:-d

-Thanks

or

Make sure you have all the .dll in the \bin directory INCLUDING the Intelligencia.UrlRewriter.dll -- it's required.

@ Jaben, yes all the Bin files are in my root bin folder.

And @ reyou, i used my applications web.config, since i wanted it to integrate with my site.

And i did not touch none of the config files in the YAH config directories, i used my root applications web.config and added a few refrences to YAF, since i wanted it and my app to function together.

Could this be what I'm doing wrong?

Something in our web.config, db.config, app.config etc. is incorrect, yes.

Ok, so it has something to do with the config files?

So i dont have to rename "recommended-web.config" to "web.config"

I can use my default applications web.config right?
