RTFM and GetParserCacheItem Exception

In 2004, I posted to a couple of forums regarding an exception I was receiving for a website that I maintained. Going back and reviewing those posts made me realize that all I needed to do was read the content of the exception message (blush) and realize that the exception was being generated because the file was not found. Here's an idea of what the message looked like...

Message: c:\someDirectory\anotherDir\webFolder\SomePage.aspx TargetSite: System.Web.UI.ParserCacheItem GetParserCacheItem() Source: System.Web Stack Trace: at System.Web.UI.TemplateParser.GetParserCacheItem() at System.Web.UI.TemplateControlParser.CompileAndGetParserCacheItem(String virtualPath, String inputFile, HttpContext context) at System.Web.UI.TemplateControlParser.GetCompiledInstance(String virtualPath, String inputFile, HttpContext context) at System.Web.UI.PageParser.GetCompiledPageInstanceInternal...

The problem was that the file wasn't found and so never loaded. Unfortunately, I expected to receive a 404 message instead of this GetParserCacheItem Exception. I didn't accept the fact that the file was NOT in the directory, biggest example of why one should RTFM, or in this instance RTFEM. Live and learn...

Hey, you have a great blog here. I know this has nothing to do with your site but I have a blog which you can see by going to I've been asking for ideas for stuff to write about. Take a look and see if there is anything I should do to make it better. Any suggestions would be great.

I also have a work at home site. Its all about, need I say it, working from home. I think people should have the choice to build their own income instead of somebody else’s. Freedom of well being and all of that...anyway take a look see what you think.

Keep up the good work, I'll be back to visit. Adrian
