DotNetNuke 4.4.0 Starter Kit issue



If you are deploying a pre-complied DNN website developed from the starter kit you will run into issues. The issue you will see is that App_GlobalResources cannot be found. The directory App_GlobalResources is removed and all files are compiled into an assembly.

The work around solution is this:
Download the DNN Source. Navigate to:

Project - DotNetNuke.Library
SourceFile - Localization.vb

Find Public Const ApplicationResourceDirectory As String = "~/App_GlobalResources"
rename the value to "~/AppGlobalResources"

Recompile and replace DotNetNuke.dll in your DNN Sites Starter kit bin

Go to your solution and rename the App_GlobalResources to AppGlobalResources.

Rebuild

You should be good to deploy to your target box.
