A slight variation on an old chestnut of a problem. I have a SP2007 farm which we are upgrading to SP2010. We are carrying out UAT on our dev platform before conducting the full live environment migration.
I have a number of webparts which are displaying the following error on the new platform:
Web Part Error: A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported. The type could not be found or it is not registered as safe.
I have checked the web.config file and the SafeControl entries are inplace and set to Safe=True with the correct assembly info. All the assemblies are present in the GAC I have already tried retracting and redeploying the wsp files with no effect.
Is there anything else that can cause this error?
