I am really stuck on this one and could use some help.
This problem started when I added an async method involving httpclient to a class library. I call the class library from a short test console application. When it gets to the async method I get an exception:
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: 'Could not load file or assembly 'System.Net.Http, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.'
Originally it said Could not load System.Net.Http Version 22.214.171.124 (I had version 126.96.36.199 in the project) and I was using Framework 4.5.2. I could not find a system.net.http version 188.8.131.52 for NET Framework 4.5.2 so I first updated the class library and test projects to NFW 4.7.2 and then added a reference to the version of System.Net.Http associated with this framework (i.e. choosing it from the assemblies tab).
When I look at the properties of the dll in the class lib project (toolslib) it shows 184.108.40.206. I added the same reference to the test project used to call it and it also now shows 220.127.116.11.
Additionally I added a redirect section to the app.config for toolslib
<dependentAssembly> <assemblyIdentity name="System.Net.Http" publicKeyToken="b03f5f7f11d50a3a" culture="neutral"/> <bindingRedirect oldVersion="0.0.0.0-18.104.22.168" newVersion="22.214.171.124"/> </dependentAssembly>
I put the same lines in the app.config for the test console app.
However I still get the same issue now with it saying it can't load 126.96.36.199. I set up Fusion Logs and got the following after running and getting the exception:

The only thing I can see from the logs is it appears to be attempting to look for the dll in the test/bin/debug folder.
I tried setting the dll to copy local but same result.
I then tried copying the system.net.http dll into the bin/debug folder manually but then when I hit that method I get a badimage exception saying I cannot use reference assemblies.
BTW also tried updating system.net.http with nuget with same result
