Below is a copy of the problem as described by user bennieh on March 5, 2015 on Codeplex. Does anyone have a workaround for this? How can I instantiate new portals based on our templates in the interim before this is fixed? I'd also be willing to work with pre-release code, if available. Thanks for your help. This is a showstopper for us.

"Not able to add new site from an exported template. Able tadd site from default templates, however, not able to get into the site settings for the new site which has been created from the default template. Errors: Error parsing Website TemplateObject reference not set to an instance of an object. at DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalController.ParseTemplateInternal(Int32 portalId, String templatePath, String templateFile, Int32 administratorId, PortalTemplateModuleAction mergeTabs, Boolean isNewPortal, LocaleCollection& localeCollection) at DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalController.CreatePortalInternal(Int32 portalId, String portalName, UserInfo adminUser, String description, String keyWords, PortalTemplateInfo template, String homeDirectory, String portalAlias, String serverPath, String childPath, Boolean isChildPortal, String& message) "

It's a known issue that was introduced in 7.4.0 (https://dnntracker.atlassian.net/brow... / https://dnntracker.atlassian.net/brow... ) -both items are assigned to 7.4.1 so hopefully will get fixed in that release . You're welcome to try our nightly builds, there's always a chance that a different fix has resolved this (I suspect not though) http://www.dnnsoftware.com/platform/b... (note: nightly builds are purely for test/investigation, we do not support upgrading from a nightly build i.e. they should never be put into production)

FYI: one of our engineers just updated dnn-6748 with this comment "I can reproduce it in 7.4.0, but works fine in 7.4.1, seems some other fix also fix this part, need QA to verify again."
