Wow, that's very strange. Do you have any error in the Sitecore logs when opening the dialog?

I didn't try an upgrade but I think I know what happened to you.

Before the July 2015 release of Coveo for Sitecore, we deployed a Coveo.UI.Controls.config file in the \App_Config\Include folder. This file is used to declare the coveoui tagprefix for UI components like the sort field picker.

In the July 2015 release (3.0.1081) of Coveo for Sitecore, we renamed this configuration file for Coveo.UI.Controls.config.example to remove our dependency on ASP.Net MVC 3 when integrating in recent versions of Sitecore. At the end of the post-installation wizard of a clean install, we ask to rename the file to remove the .example file extension.

This wizard is not displayed in an upgrade. Instead, it is recommended to follow all the documented upgrade steps for all the releases you skip and the release you are upgrading to. You probably upgraded from a release older than the July 2015 release directly to the August 2015 release without following the upgrade steps of the July 2015 release (see Upgrading from June 2015 Release to July 2015 Release).


  1. Compare your existing Coveo.UI.Controls.config file with the new Coveo.UI.Controls.config.example file.
  2. Merge back all the differences to your Coveo.UI.Controls.config file.
  3. Delete the Coveo.UI.Controls.config.example once everything is working.
