An error cannot be displayed because an optional assembly could not be found
Posted on 2007-12-03
I hope you can help me with a question or 2 I have on a new device. We have Symbol MC35 device. I installed .NET CF 2.0 and my app. It runs the application and at the point of accessing my web service on the server it comes up with the dreaded error "An error cannot be displayed because an optional assembly could not be found". I hate this error :-( I install System_SR_ENU_wm.cab It doesn't help. I changed my locale from UK to USA - nothing changed. I cannot run the app in debug mode via VS because this device always fails to connect to the web service via USB to my PC (I don't know if it is possible to run app via debug mode through the device using GPRS). Other devices work fine.
- How do I display the correct error rather than this aweful generic error.
- As other devices work, any guesses why this cannot access the web (I am using a sim card from a different but working device - which is GPRS enabled)
- Could you give me any suggestions. What would you do in this scenario?
