I have this error "System.IO.FileLoadException was unhandled" here and there always.
I build an application using a dll. But, when I run that app, I get the "System.IO.FileLoadException was unhandled"
Message="Could not load file or assembly 'Assembly name, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f07652a56255dcb5' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)"
Why is this so ?
If I have the built the app using a specific version of dll, the manifest should refer that version. Why I get this error ?
I got this error sometime earlier. But I don't remember how I got past that error.
I'm afraid I have to admit to ignorance here. I ran into the same exception once, found a quick fix on the net (sorry, can't remember where), and it worked. I never got around to learning about the manifest's purpose.
This was a VS 2008 solution. I don't know about 2005. Perhaps your problem is something different. Hopefully someone here more knowledgable then I will speak up.
Have you re-built the DLL since you added it as a reference? Or...
Have you tried adding the DLL as a project to your current solution? A multi-project solution. (So that way it builds at the same time.) Watch out for project depnedincies, too. ( On a multi-project solution, right-click on solution name and check out the Configuration Manager. )
Also, are you building the DLL as a "Debug" or as a "Release" version?
