My C# App has a reference to AvalonWizard dll. The AvalonWizard dll is strongly signed with a PublicKeyToken = 8f2c89e926618269. However, my app when is loading the AvalonWizard dll, is trying to load an assembly with PublicKeyToken = null and therefore there is the following error:
FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'AvalonWizard, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)
I don't understand why my app is trying to load the dll with public key token null, as in the .csproj is referenced the one strongly signed:
<Reference Include="AvalonWizard, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8f2c89e926618269, processorArchitecture=MSIL"> <SpecificVersion>False</SpecificVersion> <HintPath>..\dlls\AvalonWizard.dll</HintPath> </Reference>
I have checked also the assembly blind log entry, and this is the result:
*** Assembly Binder Log Entry (14/08/2018 @ 10:53:09) *** The operation failed. Bind result: hr = 0x80131040. No description available.

Any ideas where else I can check? What I don't understand is why my app is looking for the dll with null public key token.
