Could Not Load File or Assembly Error Message

Symptoms: On several occasions when opening the NYSDEC format, users have encountered the following error when trying to open a format file that was recently distributed.


Unable to read Format File: [path to format file]


Could not load file or assembly 'Infragistics2.Win.v10.2, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7dd5c3163f2cd0cb' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


Cause/Details: This is because the current format *.dll is referencing a different version of the 3rd party tool, Infragistics.


Resolution/Workaround: With EDP Closed, this error can be resolved with the following steps:


1.Navigate to the Windows temp directory by typing %temp% in the address bar of Windows Explorer;

2.Find the format *.dll, and delete it from this folder (e.g. EQEDD.dll, EFWEDD.dll).

3.Navigate to the directory of the format file (*.xsd/*.xse), and remove the format dll from the folder with the format file.

4.Launch EDP and open the format file again.
