Thank you for your feedback. We highly appreciate it.
We are aware of the problem with the Pictures usercontrol and it is due to the WebService it uses. The WebServices which the UserControls in the Portal Page
online example use are changed very often and this leads to some problems in the example. We are planning to modify these UserControls so that they are not disturbed by outside sources. In the online example we have commented the Pictures user control as this problem appeared after the examples had already been loaded on the server. That is why, the online example does not experience the error which you are reproducing locally. For the time being we could suggest you remove this user control or replace it with another one.
If you have other questions, do contact us again.
