Ultimate Menu Designer Error

I've installed the ultimate menu as shown in the tutorial; When I click on the UltimateMenuDesigner I recieve the following popup error messages.

Object referenced not set to an instance of an object

"click Ok"  then

Object variable or width block variable not set.

How do I access the menu Designer?

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error

I've also noticed that when I click on:

 http://localhost/Karamasoft/ASP.NET4.0/UltimateMenu/v3.3/Designer/UltimateMenuDesigner.aspx

as shown in the UltimateMenu ReadMe file I get the following:

http 404 The Web Page cannot be found...

maybe this is something?

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error
Do you have IIS installed on the machine you installed UltimateMenu? What version of Visual Studio are you using? Do the sample web app that comes with the installation work? If the samples work, you can use the menu XML and CSS files under the samples directory as a template and change them manually to create your menu.

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error
Did you install the .NET 4.0 version of UltimateMenu? What error message do you get when you run the sample web app?

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error

Double cheecked in the control panel installed programs list: Ultimate Menu 3.3 for ASP.NET 4.0

I navigate to the Designer folder and then open the UltimateMenuDesigner - VS2010 opens... then F5 to run the site..  I see in red Menu tree cannot be loaded. click here to see FAQ's  .... click then...

You need to download and install Microsoft Internet Explorer WebControls.

To download and install the IE WebControls (such as TreeView, TabStrip, MultiPage) used in Karamasoft UltimateMenuDesigner click on the link below:
iewebcontrols.msi  I click the link and start the installation process... Then I get the following error during the installation -

The specified path 'http://Mobile3-PC/webctrl_client' is unavailable.  the internet information service might not be running or the path exists and is redirected to another machine.  Please check the status of thei virtual directory in the internet Services Manager

Also when I click to add a menu item I get this error:

Server Error in '/Designer' Application.

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error
IE WebControls might not be working properly on IIS 7.5 Express. You should open the sample web application instead (e.g. C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Karamasoft\ASP.NET4.0\UltimateMenu\v3.3\Demos\CS\UltimateMenuCS.sln) and run. Then, you should use the menu XML and CSS files under the samples directory, which are similar to the design you need, as your template and change them to create your own menu items.

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error

Will I be able to use the designer?  Ultimately I would like to use the Ultimate Menu with a SQL database.

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error
We are not sure if you can use the designer in your specific environment, however, you might want to refer to the documentation under the CreateMenuFromDB and DataBinding directories under your C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Karamasoft\ASP.NET4.0\UltimateMenu\v3.3\Designer\Documents directory.

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error

Okay  - I'm headed in the right direction - I learned that I somehow deleted the Default web site in IIS so I corrected that by:

In IIS 7 / 7.5

  1. Right click on Sites folder and click Add Web Site…
  2. Under Site name: type “Default Web Site
  3. Under Application pool: select DefaultAppPool
  4. Under Physical path: “C:\Inetpub\wwwroot
  5. Click OK
  6. Fortunately for me, the “Default Web Site” was created with the ID 1.
  7. But just incase, if in your case the “Default Web Site” does not show ID 1 and if ID 1 is not in use.
  8. Open command prompt as an Administrator
  9. Go to C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config and type notepad applicationHost.config
  10. Find “Default Web Site” and change id=”x” to id=”1”.
  11. Save applicationHost.config
  12. Now refresh IIS Manager and start the Web Site.

Now the link:

http://localhost/Karamasoft/ASP.NET4.0/UltimateMenu/v3.3/Designer/UltimateMenuDesigner.aspx

works...

I installed the iewebcontrols.msi successfully from your link but I'm still getting the Menu tree cannot be loaded.  Any Suggestions?

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error
When do you receive the menu tree cannot be loaded message? Does this happen as soon as you open the page or are you trying to open an existing menu XML file? Have you tried clicking on the button wth the + sign on it to add a new menu item?

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error

I'm getting the same error with the UltimatePanel install too....

Panel tree cannot be loaded. Click here to see FAQ about Microsoft IE WebControls.

Uggg... any pointers or help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error
It seems that there is a problem with your IE WebControls installation. Did you receive any errors when you installed the IE WebControls? Did you have a different version of it before you downloaded from our websiet and installed it?

Re: Ultimate Menu Designer Error

I clicked on the link provided and the install said that it was successfull.  Where should/could I look to see if I had a different version of it before?

Thanks,
