Does the ASPNET account have read permissions on the directory with the DLL file in it?
Hi smetterd,

try to clear your asp.net temp folder

c:\winnt\microsoft.net\framework\v.1.1.4322\Temporary ASP.NET Files
just delete the complete content - it is just a temp files

smetterdAuthor Commented:
Someone had installed FP extensions onthe site, which had removed asp.net's permissions to the dll

jpontani, you hit it right on the head. good work.
I know that problem oh so well :).  I've had it happen to me many times, glad to hear you got it working.
