HELP: Assembly Initialization Error: File not found. Something weird about the used reference RRS feed

  • Question

  • I moved one project from solution A to solution B using TFS move (with uncommitted changes). I got compile time errors since the references were not found. There were 2 references used. I removed and added them again and compile time errors were fixed. I ran a test case and I get file not found exception.

    As per the reference properties, the Path of used reference is C:_src\HIP\Out\Debug\CIP\Bin\amd64\DataPipe\MaterializedEntityManagerTest\Caradigm.Platform.Pipeline.MaterializedEntityManager.dll

    As per the error below, I think it is looking for this, file:///C:/_src/HIP/Out/Debug/CIP/Test/amd64/DataPipe/MaterializedEntityManager

    Note that it is looking for it in the folder structure -  CIP\Test instead of CIP\Bin. This file does not exist in the Test folder. ANyways I decided to copy to the test folder and give it a shot, the folder being...  C:_src\HIP\Out\Debug\CIP\test\amd64\DataPipe\MaterializedEntityManagerTest\Caradigm.Platform.Pipeline.MaterializedEntityManager.dll. Unexpectedly, I still get the same error.

    I'm now going crazy with this error. What am i missing???
