After upgrading the CMS from Tridion 2011 to Web8.5 Template builder throws an exception below when you click on the Building blocks folder in any publication.

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object  
         <Line>Object reference not set to an instance of an 
     <StackFrame method="GetBundleSchemaID" type="Tridion.ContentManager.Templating.WebService.CompoundTemplateWebService" 
      <StackFrame method="AddBundleSubtypeToVirtualFolders" type="Tridion.ContentManager.Templating.WebService.CompoundTemplateWebService" />
      <StackFrame method="GetList" type="Tridion.ContentManager.Templating.WebService.CompoundTemplateWebService" />

I know Tridion 2011 does not support Bundles, but I assumed the upgrade script would have added in a Schema for it. Does anyone know a workaround to resolve this? is there is a way to add this in manually or is this something for SDL support?

Since my CMS DB(ORACLE)was upgraded from T2011, it does not contain any Bundles and I do not intend to create any bundles for now. However when I attempt I get an error unknown Virtual Folder Type: Virtual Folder Cartridge is not registered for this type.

Bundle Schemas are not necessary for creating Bundles, they are instead used for defining a Process Definition for Workflow, etc. I wonder why are they even mentioned in the error message, do you have any Bundle Schemas in your CM? Also, your question is lacking a very important piece of information, and that is, when do you get this message? Does it appear immediately when you open the builder and connect to an environment? Or does it appear when you open a PT/CT, or when you run a certain CT/PT? If yes, what does your templating code do?

For starters make sure to use Web 8.5's Template Builder not 2011, and please update your question with additional information.

  • I have updated my question and I am using Web8.5's Template builder, i am not getting this error when i try to create a bundle, i get a different error when i try to create a bundle which is simply unknown Virtual Folder Type: Virtual Folder Cartridge is not registered for this type.
