Could not find configuration node: wffmRenderingContext

While attempting to upgrade from 8.2 update 5 to 9.0 update 2 I came across this error after disabling the WFFM module. The upgrade guide instructs us to disable a group of files in preparation of installing the upgrade package:

  • \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.WFFM.Speak.config
  • \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.WFFM.Services.config
  • \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.WFFM.Dependencies.config
  • \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.WFFM.Analytics.config
  • \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.Forms.config
  • \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.MvcForms.config

After making this change, the following error came up:

Server Error in ‘/’ Application.

Could not find configuration node: wffmRenderingContext

The fix was to remove the Sitecore.Forms.MVC.dll. Once that was done, everything was working again as expected. I hope someone finds this tidbit useful.
