Nebie here! Hi.

I'm hitting a wall on the install routine. It gets so far then throws:

Unable to cast object of type 'YAF.Classes.YafBoardSettings' to type 'YAF.Core.YafLoadBoardSettings'.

I've searched for this problem but cant find relevant solution. Any quick pointers?

I will post the stack trace if needed

TIA, salimander

Did you set the IIS .NET Application Pool to .NET 4?

Thanks for reply.

I forgot to say that I was trying to set up an Azure.
I haven't found the equivalent of your recommended setting in Azure yet
TIA

My confusion might be coming from the Azure installation guide.

https://github.com/YAFNE...llation-on-Windows-Azure 

Installation on Windows Azure
STEP 2. Configuring the Web App in Azure
3. Make sure that the Application Pool for YAF is set to .NET 4

I can't make sense of what that means, and can find no instruction on how to do it; any ideas?
TIA, salimander

Try to set "YAF.BaseUrlMask" in app.config. It will not necessarily would solve the problem, but will allow to spot the origin.
Anyway, it's a very strange piece of code where the class is being cast to the base class it was inherited. from.

Just had a go at reinstalling the entire thing from scratch, still the same error.

How do I do that "YAF.BaseUrlMask" thing?

Open up the app.config file with a text editor and there should be some kind of documentation within the file that explains what to do.


Edit, I just found it in Administration » Board Settings but.... if you're not even getting installed, that doesn't help you one bit.

Here's the key to add to your app.config
 <add key="YAF.BaseUrlMask" value="http://www.wickedawesome.com/" />

Yes, that what I would have thought.
I've checked that file again to see if I missed it, did a search and all. but no documentation
So I added this:
<add key="YAF.BaseUrlMask" value="true"/>

Its come back with a different report this time (it did nothing the pervious time i tried it)
Still gibberish to me though :|

You no longer need to manually set the baseurlmask setting this is automatically set during the installation. And its saved in the board settings not the app.config.

Regarding the error did you use the azure web.config file as i described in the documentation? And did you completed the install process?

Yes, I used the Azure web.config
The install process went well, but didnt get to Setup finished

now when I try to reinstall it is giving me this





FILE:
mssql/install/tables.sql

ERROR:
There is already an object named 'yaf_drop_defaultconstraint_oncolumn' in the database.

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[yaf_drop_defaultconstraint_oncolumn](@tablename varchar(255), @columnname varchar(255)) as

sys.objects o1
INNER JOIN sys.columns c ON
o1.object_id = c.default_object_id
INNER JOIN sys.objects o2 ON
c.object_id = o2.object_id
WHERE
o2.name = @tablename AND
c.name = @columnname

IF @DefName IS NOT NULL
EXECUTE ('ALTER TABLE [dbo].[' + @tablename + '] DROP constraint [' + @DefName + ']')
END

Ok you remember why the setup didn't finish? I think you need to reinstall fresh, delete the database first if possible and create one new.

 // Check if BaskeUrlMask is set and if not automatically write it
                    if (this.Get<YafBoardSettings>().BaseUrlMask.IsNotSet())
                    {
                        this.Get<YafBoardSettings>().BaseUrlMask = BaseUrlBuilder.GetBaseUrlFromVariables();

                        ((YafLoadBoardSettings)this.Get<YafBoardSettings>()).SaveRegistry();
                    }

The process was failing here. BaseUrlMask was required to spot the initial error place.
It's clear from the snippet that BaskeUrlMask is/was used to override the registry board setting.

wacha: if I delete that database (ie error becasue tables already exist), and reinstall, then it fails at this error, with and without the BaseUrlMask setting.

Unable to cast object of type 'YAF.Classes.YafBoardSettings' to type 'YAF.Core.YafLoadBoardSettings'.

bbobb: what might the solution to that be?
