    I just installed the DNN, i could able to build solution successfully, while running , iam facing "Object Reference error " in class OutputCacheModule.cs in the method OnResolveRequestCache  Line 87

    var portalSettings = (PortalSettings) (HttpContext.Current.Items["PortalSettings"]);
    int tabId = portalSettings.ActiveTab.TabID;

    Not sure anything missing while installing , tables got created in the selected database. HttpContext.Current.Items["PortalSettings"] didnt has any data. So that is the reason it is throwing out error.

    Please suggest what to do in this scenario

      The usual answer to questions like this is "There is no need to build DNN."

      TO get DNN up and running you should install the "install package" and there are instructions for doing this from the home page of this site.

      If I'm not understanding your question, please provide more details, including why you are trying to build.

        To Joe's point... You rarely should locally install and run the source of DNN.  I've been building DNN solutions and extensions since the beginning, and I only run the source of it when I'm actually preparing to submit a pull request to it.  The rest of the time, the source is simply in another folder, just in case I want to dig into the source code to research something.

        Instead, you should be building your own DNN extensions against and tested against an "install" version of DNN.  You can get a guided tour of the DNN environment and the development environment from DNNDocs.com.
