  • If I try to run the "CodeUpgrade.exe" file, the window also automicaaly closing witin a second. I getting below error message.

'CodeUpgrade.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.

When you're attempting to execute the CodeUpgrade tool from command line, what directory are you starting in? Typically we have it installed in the root of the drive on the machine we're working on. For instance C:\CodeUpgrade. So you'd need to do a CD C:\CodeUpgrade to change the working directory for the console to be pointing to. Once your starting path on the console reads the the directory of where your CodeUpgrade.exe file is, you're command line will work without issue.

Did you view the information about the issue? What did it say? Sounds like an IIS issue.

The kentico source code configured in IIS, Tool_VS2017" files are in "C:\Windows\System32\Tool_VS2017" path.

The Kentico source path is "C:\kadena-k10-core\kadena2.0\WebApp.sln"

I using visual studio 2019.

Again I getting same error message. If I click yes button means below page will be open.
