Issue 2: Another Event log Error on our TFS production server
This was also a Sharepoint issue one a bit easier to solve though. The error was:
Load control template file /_controltemplates/SearchArea.ascx failed: ‘Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.SearchArea,Microsoft.SharePoint,Version=188.8.131.52,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’ is not allowed here because it does not extend class ‘System.Web.UI.UserControl’.
After some research I found out that the SearchArea.ascx file was left behind because we upgraded from WSS 3.0 to Sharepoint Foundation 2010. Renaming the file on disk to SearchArea.ascx_old stopped the errors from popping up. I guess you could probably remove it, but after that first issue, I didn’t want to tempt fate any more than I had to.
And now to lunch.
