I've created a Coveo search page using the reference here: https://developers.coveo.com/display/public/SitecoreV4/Inserting+and+Customizing+a+Search+Interface+Component. When I try to preview it, I get the following error:

Error rendering the following component: Default

System.InvalidOperationException:
 Error while rendering view: '/Views/Coveo/SearchViewLayout.cshtml'.
 ---> System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: Section or 
group name 'system.web.webPages.razor' is already defined. Updates to 
this may only occur at the configuration level where it is defined.

Other items appear correctly in Preview mode. In the logs, there is no additional information; same error. It looks like I have this section in multiple files in the following locations:

Views
Views\Coveo
Views\Coveo Hive
sitecore\shell\client
layouts\Coveo Hive
Coveo\Hive\templates
Areas\Social\Views
Areas\Aopa\Views
Areas\Admin\Views

I do not have a Razor sectionGroup in my main web.config. I would rather not provide the web.config because it has sensitive data in it.

I've tried adding <remove name="system.web.webPages.razor"/> before the sectionGroup definition but that does nothing.

Coveo for Sitecore 4.1 came with Web.configs that referenced System.Web.WebPages.Razor V2.0.0. My project uses 3.0.0. I had to update the version in the following files to 3.0.0:

Views/Coveo/Web.config
Views/Coveo Hive/Web.config
layouts/Coveo Hive
Coveo/Hive/templates
