I have the same error that "Massabuau"

The prefix of the 'SPUrl' expression is unknown. Change the prefix or sign in this prefix in the <ExpressionBuilder> section of the configuration.

Anyone have the solution of this? Thank you!

Is there any way to get this tool to work with the Issue Tracker List template? The Advanced Search button is not showing up in the Ribbon.

I fixed the original error by starting the SharePoint Sandbox Service and restarted the server's SharePoint 2010 User Code Host service. The error I am getting is "Web Part Error: The request could not be completed because the specified solution was not found."

Any ideas?

I am getting the following error:
No available sandboxed code execution server could be found

How do I resolve this error?

After installing this solution, when I click on "Advances Search" I get the following error message:

The prefix of the 'SPUrl' expression is unknown. Change the prefix or sign in this prefix in the <ExpressionBuilder> section of the configuration.

Do I need to change the web.config file ? If so, what do I need to enter there ?

"Web Part Error: The sandboxed code execution request was refused because the Sandboxed Code Host Service was too busy to handle the request.:
