Kentico Upgrade Tool Didn't Merge CMSApp_AppCode and CMSApp Projects; when is this Supposed to Happ

kentico guy asked on February 22, 2022 16:36

I'm running into some strange issues with a website that I upgraded from 8.2 to 12 portal engine. I messaged my vendor yesterday who built the website and they said that CMSApp and CMSApp_AppCode projects are supposed to be merged automatically at some point when the app gets upgraded. When is this supposed to happen? from 8.2->9 ?? 9->10 ?? 10-11 ?? 11-12 ???

I've upgraded Kentico before and never seen this happen where it's in version 12 and there's two seperate project files. Has anyone seen this happen before and if so what did you do to merge them together?

It would be helpful to know when the projects are supposed to get merged because I have each version in its own branch so that way I wouldn't have to shoot in the dark for merging them manually. Thanks

IT should be done when upgrading to Kentico 10. It is described in the upgrade documentation. Please read the documentation for more details. And especially this section describes how it works.

I did this manually by moving the code from CMSApp_AppCode into CMSApp then deleting the other project file. It worked, and fixed some issues I was having when the installer didn't merge them automatically.
