U4-542 - 404handlers.config does not report errors

Created by Sebastiaan Janssen 19 Aug 2012, 14:53:55 Updated by Shannon Deminick 21 Jun 2017, 07:52:13

Hi I found this a bit frustrating today. If there is a typo in your 404handlers.config then the handler is not loaded, I had the correct type, I just had it with namespace included.

If errors could be reported instead of 'on error resume next' style functionality it would have been a great help.
