c# – sgen.exe fails during build – Stack Overflow

After adding a new 3rd party reference to a project and then building for Release configuration I got this error (not present when in debug build):
Error Could not load file or assembly ‘x’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. SGEN  

Here is a solution that worked for me:

If you are having this problem while building your VS.NET project in Release mode here is the solution: Go to the project properties and click on the Build tab and set the value of the “Generate Serialization Assembly” dropdown to “Off”. Sgen.exe is “The XML Serializer Generator creates an XML serialization assembly for types in a specified assembly in order to improve the startup performance of a XmlSerializer when it serializes or deserializes objects of the specified types.” (MSDN)

EPiServer edit and admin not working after upgrade to EPiServer 11.8

I have upgraded a site from EPiServer 7.5 to 11.8.
When deploying the upgraded site to the test environment the edit and admin interface stopped working (the top episerver ui menu visible but lots of js errors and no “main edit window visible” and entire admin mode 404 not found).

The problem was related to some old config for “ProtectedAddons”, i just commented the below config in web.config on test server and the edit and admin mode works again.

(comment out/remove below from web.config)

Inspiration for the solution came from here: Object reference error in initialization modules

How to solve Selenium error Element is not clickable at point (x, y) Other element would receive the click
