After upgrading to R8 "SecureSessionModule" errors are seen in the Windows event log

PROBLEM
After upgrading to Kaseya R8, you see event log messages that report

Event code: 3008
Event message: A configuration error has occurred.

And contain, in the description:
Exception message: Could not load type 'Kaseya.SessionModule.SecureSessionModule'.

CAUSE
This is due to a invalid reference in one of the configuration files. It is not doing any harm, simply IIS reporting that it is unable to access a file which does not exist (and should not)

RESOLUTION / WORKAROUND
The fix is to remove the invalid reference. Follow the steps below to resolve this.

1. Log in to the Kaseya server desktop (Windows)
2. Navigate to c:\kaseya\webpages\web.config
3. Use a text editor such as Notepad
4. Look for the line like <add type= "Kaseya.SessionModule.SecureSessionModule" name="SecureSessionModule"/>
5. Add the symbol <!-- before <add type= "Kaseya.SessionModule.SecureSessionModule" name="SecureSessionModule"/>
6. Add the symbol --> after <add type= "Kaseya.SessionModule.SecureSessionModule" name="SecureSessionModule"/>
7. Save the file
8. Place the edited web.config at c:\kaseya\webpages\

Here is a screenshot of how your web.config file should look like:
