DevMagazineSite Sitefinity 9.1 - Initialization failed

  • DevMagazineSite Sitefinity 9.1 - Initialization failed
  • I am trying to get the  DevMagazineSite to run on my local box with SF 9.1

    Using Visual Studio 2015 Professional, locally installed Sql Server 2014, with the database bak restored.

     I open the solution and run it, projects compiles, cogwheels then:

    Initialization failed

    The type initializer for 'Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime.RoleEnvironment' threw an exception. 

  • Hello,

    Can you please verify or (re-)install the Windows Azure SDK for .NET for Visual Studio?

    This solved the issue for me.

    Now it seems to get beyond the initial initialization but I get the following 

    You have requested a file from older product minor version(ProductMinorVersionId = 4513, ProductId = 725) 

    I am using the version 9.1 trail version

     

     

  • Try to put your licence file inside this folder App_Data\Sitefinity and restart application

    And be sure, that you have correct licence key. I mean, from version 9.1

  • So I suppose it that means that the Devmagazine site will not work with the trail version  ...  it may help if you'll put that out there ...

  • So I would like to get this DevMagazine up and running on my local machine so that I can learn from it. I did see the requirements for a Sitefinity CMS License. I have a license for the project I am working on. It is the latest release of Sitefinity. Am I supposed to use that license for this tutorial/sample site? Or should I download a trial key for it? Any guidance would be appreciated. 
  • Hi Jason,

    Yes, you can use your licence for DevMagazine
