I had to restore 5.1.4 due to troubles trying to install Modules and Tabs menu (from .template files). I tried to report this issue using Gemini, but it said that I need more privileges to do that. I get an error that said "Tab Exists" (using the Wizzard Assistat) when I trying to install a menu, using the Merge option!!

Had the HTML install issues talked about by others. Circumstances where the icons for menu options under the Admin and Host menus disappear. Complains about "Object doesn't support this property or method" referencing initWidgets.js when I use IE8 to view my DNN pages. Firefox and IE7 are fine.

Same here, on all my upgraded sites, the diacritic characters (é, è, à, ...) are replaced by question marks. For the rest a very good version. The localization api looks very promising. I expect lots of goodness from it :)

I've just installed 5.02 on two separate Windows servers without an issue at all. I think they work great. Thanks for all the thousands of hours of labor!

Please see my DNN forum post titled: "The Resource Cannot Be Found: /Login.aspx - Cannot Get Past Portal Homepage". I hope to come back later and update this rating with good news. For now, my portal is DITW. Reinstalled IIS, tweaked every setting it has 4 times and gone back and forth on the forum with a gentleman named Sebastian who's tried to help as much as he could. Still doesn't work.

Cannot run site, errors out right away, there is a work around but please fix for all users.

Yup, test cases have been found lacking. The HTML module is the culprit. To solve this, one must download the HTML module source codes, locate the "bin" from there, then copy the file "DotNetNuke.Modules.Html.dll" to the "bin" folder of the DNN folder. After this, the DNN web app should run. But personally, I still find this CMS great.

HTML Module was missing in the 'new install'. I had to paste the 'version upgrade' over the 'new install' to get it to work. After installing the 'new install' the upgrade gave me this: Current Assembly Version: 05.02.00 Current Database Version: 05.01.01 Please test your releases.

After the update from version 05.01.04 to version 05.02.00, an error occurs. On some pages, the HTML component does not show the content in Unicode. Other sites are ok.

I suddenly get question marks all over the place in HTML modules on my website.
