Installing a database/application created in Visual Studio but it errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Let me preface this by saying I am not an IT trained person I'm simply trying to support some fellow staff members. When trying to install this database/application on a brand new laptop I get the following error

    "Unable to install or run the program. The application requires that the assembly Microsoft.Office.Tools.Commonv9.0 version be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first"

    I have successfully installed it on other laptops and desktops, though they are not brand new. I'm not sure what the problem is. Or if I can solve it? The original developer is not available to assist.

  • Hi,

    To handle this issue, you can try to download "Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common.v9.0.dll" form internet.

    Besides, I think the most direct and effective way is to contact the publisher of the software.
