Asked On January 4, 2008 05:17 PM UTC

I just installed grid studio setup and every thing went fine during installation. Now when i am trying to browse the sample application using the tool "C:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Infrastructure\SampleBrowser\boostrapper.exe" i get the following exception.

{"Could not load file or assembly 'Syncfusion.Tools.Windows, Version=4.402.0.51, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3d67ed1f87d44c89' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.":"Syncfusion.Tools.Windows, Version=4.402.0.51, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3d67ed1f87d44c89"}

Please let me know what I am missing. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling using assembly manager but to no avail.

This might be because of the Syncfusion dll's pointing to the older version of assembly in references folder of the project. Please make sure all the Syncfusion' dlls in application assembly is pointing to the version in the solution explorer window. Also make a check that Syncfusion.Tools.Windows of version is present in GAC and in public assemblies folder.

Please follow the below steps to solve the problem:

1) Open the Assembly Manager utility from the following location,
Start --> All Programs --> Syncfusion --> Essential Studio --> Utilities --> AssemblyManager

2) In the AssemblyManager, select the "Remove All Versions" option and then click "Perform Action". This will remove all the Syncfusion assemblies from GAC(C:\Windows\Assembly) and public assemblies folder({Install Drive}:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies).

3) Select the "Install version" option and then click the "Perform Action". This will install the Syncfusion assemblies of version in the GAC and the public assemblies folder.

4) Delete the project output (bin/ and obj/) folders.

5) Open the application in the solution explorer and delete all the Syncfusion assemblies from the reference folder.

6) Right click the reference folder and choose “Add references…”. In the add reference dialog, select the needed Syncfusion assemblies and make sure that the assemblies version is 4.402.0.51 and the "SpecifcVersion" property should be made false in property window. This will help the user to build the project with any 4.402.0.51 version of Syncfusion.

7) Delete the licenses.licx file from the application and add the attached licenses.licx file and change the "BuildAction" property to be "Embedded Resource".

Licenses.licx: http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/licenses_2dbc15.zip

8) Now recompile and run the sample.

Let me know if this helps.
