When running a file through converter the output file will not be created and there is an error in the error.log file similar to the one below:

Error Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

There will be more then just the line above in the error.log file depending on what type or rule is causing the problem.  There could be lines mentioning the actual rule that the problem is located in.

When running the template and source file in designer and attempting a preview the following error will pop up on the screen and there will be an error in the error.log file the same as was created from the converter.
