I updated my blog from 1.6 to 2.5. I tried all solutions but i am still getting that warning.

Any solutions?

Did you changed the BlogEngineCore.dll file in bin directory? If not, then you need to copy the new dll from your BE2.5 bin folder.

Let me know if this does not solve your problem.

No i did not change. I tried copying but nothing changed.

I downloaded source (v 2.5) , build core project and published .net project. That solved problem.

But now i am dealing with .cshtml problem. I added handlers in web.config but still dashboard is showing undesired page.

Good to know that the earlier problem got resolved.

For .cshtml problem, verify that the web host supports 4.0 and IIS 7.

I am not sure that this will fix the issue but one of my blog  is running on BE 2.5 with and IIS7 with no issues.
