Customizing the Toolbox

Posted on 2006-05-04

I'm trying to add to the toolbox some controls which used to be on the
toolbox but suddenly disappeared from there.
When I browse to the dll file in the Customize Toolbox window, I get the
message "The assembly <path> could not be loaded. check that any
dependencies the file requires are installed"
Does anyone know what it means?

Thanks, Libby

    Sounds like your .net install has been broken somehow (missing or corrupt dll's) would suggest putting the install disk back in the drive and asking it to repair the installation.

    Thanks, but it was some other dlls that the dll used that I had to add before I added this dll.
