Hello,

We have seen this issue reported before. It usually is connected with an issue in .NET or VS project cache. Are you opening the website project in Visual Studio?

Generally, we would recommend to try deleting .NET caches:

    "$appdata\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache\",

    "$appdata\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\ProjectAssemblies\",

    "$appdata\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\ProjectAssemblies\";



    "$windir\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files\",

    "$windir\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files\",

    "$windir\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files\",

    "$windir\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files\",

(you can delete just the subfolder with IIS site name in the above folders)

After that, please completely close all projects and VS windows and then re-open the project again.

Please let me know if this helps.

I have run into this twice now. Both times restarting the application pool in IIS manager fixed it for me. Hope it helps.

I just ran into this again with a different site hosted in Azure Cloud Services. I rebooted the Instance and it fixed it.

I have the same issue and restart appPool does not solve my issue , i think it's an issue with .Net framework version.

Hello Mohamed, are you using a web application? if so, could you please try to rebuild the solution ( clean and then rebuild ) and see if it fixes your issue.

Thanks Timothy,

I found the issue in my code , it was spelling mistake in custom table class name , it's one of drawbacks of using strings in such situations

I had this issue as well and restarting the application in IIS fixed it for me also. It happened after deleting and re-importing a custom page type. Thanks for posting your solutions to this, it was a great help!

Hello,

i run into the same issue:

Message

Message: [AbstractProvider.GetProvider]: The object type 'customtableitem........' is missing the provider type configuration.

This massage is kind a confusing! I found out that the there was a simple type at the table class name.

Kind regards

I'm having this issue as well on our dev and qa boxes. When we blow away the temporary files it fixes the problem for about an hour or 2 and then the problem comes back again. I'm not having the issue on my local system at all with studio.

We are running a weird configuration though, we've got one site setup and 2 applications setup under that one site. One for kentico and one for our mvc app which interacts with kentico. Both have their own application pool and are using Integrated Pipeline Mode.

Any ideas??
