    I see that after this post, you went and added a "me too" to other posts. As stated in the other posts, I've only seen this error when your environment has a central admin site above the primary site(s). If so, then the first release of the Ticker app didn't accommodate that scenario. The newer version that we released in very early May (I think it was then anyway), does successfully handle the CAS and child primary scenarios.

    Try going to the main Cireson page, then Products, then Free Community Apps, to download the newer version of the Ticker app. Install it and see if that resolves your issue. Please do report back here and let us all know.
