I have an MVC site on C# which I develop on several machines and use a share for syncing the code. After some iterations I am not able to start it through Visual Studio and I get:
Could not load file or assembly 'Site-MyComputer' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)
The "-MyComputer" part was added by the studio and even after I searched for MyComputer in the solution files I was not able to locate where it was referred from. My log says:
=== Pre-bind state information === LOG: DisplayName = Site-MyComputer (Partial) WRN: Partial binding information was supplied for an assembly: WRN: Assembly Name: Site-MyComputer | Domain ID: 2 WRN: A partial bind occurs when only part of the assembly display name is provided. WRN: This might result in the binder loading an incorrect assembly. WRN: It is recommended to provide a fully specified textual identity for the assembly, WRN: that consists of the simple name, version, culture, and public key token. WRN: See whitepaper http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=109270 for more information and common solutions to this issue. LOG: Appbase = file:<file path>/Site/ LOG: Initial PrivatePath = <file path>\Site\bin Calling assembly : (Unknown). ===
After a lot of digging I have found the solution - in the bin folder in the solution, which is hidden by default in the Solution explorer there was the file with the wrong name in addition to the normal one. After I deleted it from the Solution explorer everything is working!
