I looked farther into this issue and saw all the .dll files were placed into the Syncfusion\assemblies\1.0 folder and should have been placed into 1.1 folder. Are these 1.0 dll files or can I just move them over to the 1.1 folder and run them from there?

Hi Skye, When the install is complete, have you tried to manually run the Assembly Manager through the start menu? If this proceeds without error, everything should be good to go. Otherwise, it is possible to mimic the behavior of the Assembly Manager yourself by: Copy the 1.1 folder under the Precompiled Assemblies folder (e.g. c:\program files\syncfusion\essential studio\\precompiledassemblies\\1.1) to the Assemblies folder under the install root (e.g. c:\program files\syncfusion\essential studio\assemblies\1.1). Then take the assemblies from the assemblies folder and add these to the GAC. The assemblies are version specific, and while you can use 1.0 assemblies in a 1.1 application, the 1.0 assemblies might bring in unwanted dependencies whereas the 1.1 version would not. Let us know if you continue to experience difficulties. Thanks, and have a great day! -Trampas
