Can't reproduce in build 89 with the same configuration (IIS 7.5/SQL2008R2). I'm assuming it's a local configuration problem.

I install build 89 on two machine. Both two have the issue. Why?

esunxray 25 Dec 2012, 01:09:39

And I must say that I have installed many Umbraco version without any problems on my computer.

esunxray 25 Dec 2012, 11:19:54

I have download build 89 and install it with IIS7.5/SQL2008R2withSP2. No package is installed. You can see that I can't enter backoffice.

Upload whole site and database, Please use sql server 2008 r2 to attach the database file, and then change user and password in web.config. Please test it and give me answer.

I test it with IE9 and Chrome. This happens with IE9. When I use Chrome to login, it's all right. I have clean up all IE data to test it and it happens again.

Does it help if you remove this line from umbraco\umbraco.aspx? <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="<%=umbraco.GlobalSettings.Path + "/images/pinnedIcons/umb.ico" %>" />

esunxray 27 Dec 2012, 10:55:56

Yes, After I removed the line. I can enter backoffice with IE9. Why this happen?

Sebastiaan Janssen 27 Dec 2012, 11:09:23

I'm not sure.. Can you try changing it to <%# instead of <%= So replace it with this line:

<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="<%#umbraco.GlobalSettings.Path + "/images/pinnedIcons/umb.ico" %>" />
