This is a good good morning. We start our application and this morning we receive this error into the File Picker.

We are working on a custom field, so first of all we start to:

  • Debug a lot: result KO
  • clean our site collection with all customization: result KO
  • IISReset: result KO
  • Restart server: result KO

During the first step, our log says:

"Name=Request (GET:"


"Error while executing web part: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.    
 at System.Xml.Xsl.XslCompiledTransform.Load(MethodInfo executeMethod, Byte[] queryData, Type[] earlyBoundTypes)    
 at Microsoft.Xslt.STransform.GetCompiledTransform()    
 at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.BaseXsltListWebPart.LoadXslCompiledTransform( WSSXmlUrlResolver someXmlResolver)    
 at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.DataFormWebPart.GetXslCompiledTransform()    
 at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.DataFormWebPart.PrepareAndPerformTransform(Boolean bDeferExecuteTransform)"

The next step was to start to ask help to Google and we found some indication regard an System Update: the KB2844286 cause this error (released on 11th July 2013). To resolve the problem, they suggest to uninstall the update: From the Control Panel and Installed Updated into the Microsoft Services. After that, if you have a virtual machine, I suggest you to restart the machine, otherwise you can restart SharePoint services and IISReset.
