DNN 9 Module Development using Christoc VS2017 Templates – Personal Reference

Acquiring the DNN Development Templates:

Additional documentation here:

DesktopModules Virtual Directory created when new module Project was created. Causes generic error when accessing DNN site. Resolution here:

After project creation the reference to “DotNetNuke.dll” had to be added from C:\inetpub\wwwroot\dotnetnuke\bin. If you’re reading this, the directory location will depend on where you installed DNN.

Reference to “Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data” is missing. Hasn’t caused an issue yet… (TO BE UPDATED?)

Tools –> Manage NuGet packages for solution. Shows there’s a missing package, click on “restore” to download it.
