  • Question

  • Hello Everybody

    I have developed an windows application using .Net on 32bit environment.

    While tried to deploy this program on windows server 2012 on 64 bit environment, I got the following error:

    Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies.

    Error Details are below:

    The system cannot find the file specified. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.



    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

    Can anyone please help me.

    Thanks in Advance

  • Hello MuminShah,

    According to the error message, it shows clearly the Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll is missing, as far as I know this dll does not exist in the GAC by default, please check GAC folder(C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\) to see if you have install this dll to the target computer.

    Or you could go back to your project. Click the "Show All Files" icon on the toolbar in the Solution Explorer window. That now shows the References node. Expand it and select the PowerPacks reference. In the Properties window, change the Copy Local property to True.

    Rebuild and your build directory now will have a copy of the DLL. Copy it along with the EXE onto the target machine.

    Regards.
