Hiya David,
These errors are very generic and do not give us any detail to the problem.

To view the full stack trace and error (which will be highlgihted in red, further down the page) you will need to use the following querystring appened to the URL with the error on it: ?umbDebugShowTrace=true

Report back here what the problem is.

Hello David,
It looks like you have installed the CommerceForUmbraco package into the site, which is causing problems.

Basically the problem is that it cannot find the DLL named CommerceForUmbraco.xsltExtensions.dll which should be located in the D:\Web\Firma\Umbraco\bin\ folder.

You could try downloading the package to your desktop (which is a normal ZIP file) and unzip the folder and manually copy over the missing DLL from the Commerce for Umbraco package.
