forking the Ajax Control Toolkit RRS feed

  • User-1422203677 posted

    I wanted to fix a bug in the html Editor Extender of the ACT, so I went to GitHub, downloaded a copy, made my change.  But then I did not know how to make my asp.net project use it.  I can't just copy the dll that is produced to the  bin folder of my project, because I get this error:

    Could not load file or assembly 'AjaxControlToolkit, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=28f01b0e84b6d53e' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)                                                   

    Its possible that the GAC has another version, or the web.config refers to an assembly that doesn't match, or maybe the manifest (where-ever that is) has to be changed.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi Gaston,

    Firstly, you could install AjaxControlToolkit in Manage NuGet Packages window if you are using Visual Studio.

    Secondly, you could download and install AjaxControlToolkit from the site.


    Best Regards,

    If I install from nuget though, all I have is the dll.  I don't have the source code.  If I obtain the source code, make my change, and compile it, then it produces a dll, but that dll is not compatible with the changes that nuget made to my web.config.
