Azure/WAP: System.MethodAccessException: Attempt by security transparent method

 

While working on a Windows Azure Pack Web Sites, I found a problem publishing MVC5 site. When you attempt to upload a MVC5 web application to Windows Azure or Windows Azure Pack you may see the error “‘System.Web.WebPages.Administration.SiteAdmin.RegisterAdminModule()’ to access security critical method ‘System.Web.WebPages.ApplicationPart..ctor(System.Reflection.Assembly, System.String)’ failed.

 

I had to perofrm the following steps to resolve;

1.       Install the package

From the Package management console run the following command:

Install-Package -Id  Microsoft.AspNet.WebHelpers

2.       Change the deployment options to remove additional files.
