Hi Expert,
I recently convert an existing application (used for years without problem) from VS2008 to VS2012, it runs fine within Visual Studio, no error, and works perfict.  But when I install it to the server and run from IIS, it give be Server Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.  I wish I can see the error in the debug that find where is rong, but it would not happen.  How can I find where is wrong?

Was the code .NET4 compiled before?
Are all dependancies installed on the server?

it would also help if you had some error checking in your code to catch exception.   I dont see a single try in all that code.

Your question was  " How can I find where is wrong? "

I explained how you should add Try Catch to your code and this has indeed shown you that the problem is with your session object, clearly answering the question of " How can I find where is wrong? "
