Created by Joshua Stewart 29 Jul 2015, 15:04:46 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 07:13:12

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Download 7.3 Beta zip - https://our.umbraco.org/ReleaseDownload?id=149387
  2. Unblock ZIP
  3. Unzip beta
  4. In Visual Studio 2013 open the unzipped beta as website Shift-ALT-O
  5. Build and debug website (will take a bit to validate web site)
  6. Enter name, email and password then Click Customize on install screen
  7. Leave as SQL-CE and click Continue
  8. Select second/middle starter kit

Install proceeds and says it's done an starts to redirect to backend then throws the following error:

Adding the App_Plugins folder and refreshing clears the error and the backend appears as expected.
