Hi Ashokraj,

Thanks for your update.


Entry Point not found Exception


We tried to replicate the reported issue in our side, but we could not able to reproduce it.

The reported issue will occur when your application does not have the correct entry point. Please refer to the below information.

*The common language runtime is unable to locate an application entry point (typically a Main method) in an executable assembly. The application entry point must be a global or static method that has either no parameters or a string array as its only parameter. The entry point can return void, or it can return an Int32 or UInt32 exit code. An application assembly cannot define more than one entry point.

please refer to the following msdn link for more details about this kind of exception(and how to overcome it).

Please let us know if you have any concerns.
