dear team,

    While adding a module Orchard.Module.Contrib.Reviews 1.0.1 i am getting the error

Package uploading and installation failed.

There was an error installing the requested package. This can happen if the server does not have write access to the '~/Modules' or '~/Themes' folder of the web site. If the site is running in shared hosted environement, adding write access to these folders sometimes needs to be done manually through the Hoster control panel. Once Themes and Modules have been installed, it is recommended to remove write access to these folders.

Value cannot be null. Parameter name: input

After this i Modefied my Theme and module folder from Orchard.web but getting the same error.

how to resolve this i want to add a star rating to my project.

For Star rating you need the Voting and Stars modules, not Reviews.

Again upgrading Orchard could help - if not then you need to check the write permissions on those folders.
