Error in DotNetNuke after Upgrade to 5.6.3 The file '/Admin/Users/Profile.ascx'
Recently I upgraded a DotNetNuke Project to 5.6.3. After the upgrade everything seemed fine. When I went into Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and opened the website and tried to compile I got a few errors. The main error that plagued me was: Error 3 The file '/Admin/Users/Profile.ascx' does not exist. \admin\Users\ViewProfile.ascx 2 .
I noticed the upgrade basically cleared out the /admin/users folder, except left the ViewProfile control. This seems to reference a control with the tag name “profile”.
To get around this error, simply delete the ViewProfile.aspx and it's code behind. Recompile and you should be fine.
