Just tried to run OWS on DNN 8 and got an exception.  The steps are below

1. Download & Install  DNN version 08.00.00 RC (build 800) Jan 12, 2016, Stable
2. Install OWS 2.2.21 extension
3. Drop OWS module on page
4. Open OWS Admin interface
5. Create New Config

6. Publish Config returns the following error "Failed to complete query, Please try again"

7. Then tried to open the DNN Settings for the OWS module and got the following error (extracted From the event viewer)

On further inspection, it appears that the web.config is missing the entry below. All i did to fix the problem was to add this entry to the . ... Interesting to note that the comments in my OLD web.config file state that this entry is only required for backwards compatability. But these comments and the entry have been removed from the in DNN 8

previous post removed the appSettings xml entry.  This is what it should be 

<appSettings>
     <add key="SiteSqlServer" value="Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Initial Catalog=MyDB;User ID=MyUser;Password=MyPwd" />  

      ..

</appSettings>

just a further update. On DNN's codeplex download page under the heading "Breaking Changes", one of the bullet points states... "Removed the legacy appSetting connection string (modules that have not updated for this in the past years will now break as a result)"
