I just upgraded on of my Sitefinity sites from 6.3 to 7.0. The upgrade process seemed to go well, but I'm noticing a problem. None of my custom modules show up in the backend. When I go to Administration -> Modules and Services, Module builder's status is "Failed". The details tooltip says:

Unable to load config section "dynamicModulesConfig"

I don't really know what's going on here. It suggest to me that my configuration file isn't properly registered or something like that. When I look at /App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/DynamicModules.config" it still says config:version="6.3.5000.0".

 Anyone have an idea what's going on here?

I've attached what I believe is the associated error message and my DynamicModulesConfig.config file.

After you have upgraded your project using the project manager you need to open it in Visual Studio and apply the configurations described in article:


Then you need to build your project. If you do not build the project you might encounter the described problem.

To resolve it make sure that you have followed all steps from the upgrade procedure, build your project and reinstall the Module Builder module from Administration -> Modules & Services.
