After upgrading the Software Virtualization Solution on the Notification Server, I am unable to access any of the Software Virtualization Solution tasks or the wizard, and the following error appears in the log when trying to view the tasks:

Unhandled exception. Type=System.Web.HttpException Msg=File or assembly name Altiris.SV, or one of its dependencies, was not found. StackTrace= at System.Web.UI.TemplateParser.GetParserCacheItemInternal(Boolean fCreateIfNotFound) at System.Web.UI.TemplateParser.GetParserCacheItemWithNewConfigPath() 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(String virtualPath, String inputFile, HttpContext context) at System.Web.UI.PageHandlerFactory.GetHandler(HttpContext context, String requestType, String url, String path) at System.Web.HttpApplication.MapHttpHandler(HttpContext context, String requestType, String path, String pathTranslated, Boolean useAppConfig) at System.Web.MapHandlerExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication+IExecutionStep.Execute() at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously) Inner exception.

Or getting the following error when trying to launch the wizard or edit exiting packages on NS:

The following error occurred on the page "svpackageui.aspx" unknown or unspecified error.
