  • Question

  • Using Visual Studio VB trying to add a data source I get this error."error message:could not load type

  • This is because the incompatible assemblies between VS2008 rtm and sp1. More specifically, it is because the Microsoft.VSDesigner.dll (GAC) on your box is updated to VS2008 SP1 version, but the Microsoft.VisualStudio.DataDesign.SyncDesigner.DslPackage.dll is still the RTM one. This could happen in some SxS SP1 installation scenarios...

    The solution for this is try to re-install VS2008 SP1. Or try to replace the Microsoft.VisualStudio.DataDesign.SyncDesigner.DslPackage.dll assembly to the SP1 version.
