Build error - Adodb.dll RRS feed

  • Question

  • User640374800 posted

    I,m working on an old ASP.NET 2.0 application, and on trying to build the solution (or run it via a browser) I am getting this error...

    Configuration Error

    Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

    Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    There are 2 references to this assembly in the web.config, both for version 7.0.3300.0, but when i search on the laptop the version in - 

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft.NET\Primary Interop Assemblies is 7.10.6070. I cant comment out the config entries or update the version as on build they are set back to originals.

    I am running VS2019 professional so not sure if this is not suitable for trying to run such as old application? Presumably this is how the more recent assemblies got installed on my machine? Or via the original windows install?

    Does anyone know how i can resolve this?

    I could not find 7.0.3300.0 version of adodb.dll online or find this version in Nuget.

    Hi mark1961,

    If you must use version 7.0.3300.0, you may have to copy the dll file of that version from another computer, or restore your own computer to get it (if you have one) .

    Then solve the problem by manual installation, you can refer to this document for detailed steps.

    Hope this can help you.

    Best regards,
