I have problem with Google Analytics API .NET. While connecting to GA via api at line

        var certificate = new X509Certificate2(pathToPrivateKey, passToPrivateKey, X509KeyStorageFlags.Exportable);
        ServiceAccountCredential credential = new ServiceAccountCredential(new ServiceAccountCredential.Initializer(serviceAccountEmailAddress)

I tried the same code on Windows 7 and it works.
I have no idea what goes wrong.
Any idea?

It looks like your main problem is the inner exception you got:

InnerException: System.IO.FileLoadException
 Message=Could not load file or assembly 'System, Version=2.0.5.0, Culture=neutral,
 PublicKeyToken=7cec85d7bea7798e, Retargetable=Yes' or one of its dependencies. 

The good news is that you should just install the following patch: KB2468871, as suggested here: Could not load file or assembly System, Version=2.0.5.0 in .NET 4 MVC 4 application
