Kinetic Configurator Error

I am in the process of creating Kinetic Configurators scratch but, at times, when I go to publish the shell of a configurator (all the controls with no code behind them) I am getting an error on the server that I cannot seem to figure out. Has anyone seen this and have an idea as to why it would be generated?

Error Below

I’m facing the same issue. Did you find a solution to this?

Not yet, EpiCare has sent it off to Development but no response yet.

Just had this crop up for us too. Any chance you’ve had a resolution?

Still nothing yet. We just installed a release that has a bit of configurator updates, so I am going to try again and see what happens.

The Epicor Cloud team solved this problem for us. They had to run an SQL script for it to work again. It was the following SQL script:

select * from Ice.SysConfig where Key1=‘KineticUseFileSystemNotDB’
UPDATE Ice.SysConfig SET SysCharacter01 = ‘true’ where Key1 = ‘KineticUseFileSystemNotDB’

This is only a workaround. There is no general fix yet.
