Hey everyone,

My webiste was running fine, i don't know what has changed but all of a sudden I lost my oforms module. The module is still there, I can activate and deactivate it but it doesn't appear anymore to configure on my admin menu + the form I created has dissapeared.

If I reinstall it it doesn't come back..

I've check the logs in my appdata folder and this is what I get:

2012-09-13 13:21:24,025 [11] Orchard.ContentManagement.DefaultContentManager - NullReferenceException thrown from IContentHandler by Orchard.Core.Navigation.Handlers.ContentMenuItemPartHandler
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

The weird thing is that this error references to a path from my other computer where i copied the solution from: C:\Users\Lien\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\CLB151\src\

This is not the folder that i'm currently working in.

does anyone have a clue how this can happen?

Kind regards,

I've solved it, i reloaded the oforms module again in Visual studio, disabled and enabled it again and it works now.

And the paths you're getting from debugging information is always from where the application was compiled. Nothing to be concerned about here.

Just to add, the exception you have seen is a bug in the Navigation module and will be fixed in the 1.6 release.

Thanks, i'm still getting the errors but it's not a problem, i'll wait for the 1.6 release.

Do you know if their will be an upgrade system available then?
