C# WPF program runs in debug but not release without debugging


Trying to test a small program in release mode without debugging. Program runs fine in debug mode, and fine in release mode with debugging. When I try to run in release with no debugging the following happens.

*Note: I've tried multiple configuration modes. For configurations other than x86 and platform = x86 gives me a mismatch processor architecture error.
Project being built = MSIL | Reference architecture of ChilkatDotNet45 is x86

I've run in many different configs.

Is this a project reference being the wrong architecture type or something else?
Do I just need to try to find a different version of MySql.Data.CF library?

Anyways, here's what I have...if you need more request it:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileLoadException' occurred in CWPart2 - WPF.exe

Additional information: Could not load file or assembly 'MySql.Data.CF, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d, Retargetable=Yes' or one of its dependencies. The given assembly name or codebase was invalid. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131047)

Make sure you have a copy of the database files in the Release folder
