Hi esperts.
I am migratin an application developed on VS express 2005 with a MySql database.
When trying to compile the app in the new computer I get the following error:

An error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details.  The error is: Could not load file or assembly 'MySql.Data, Version=1.0.7.30072, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Any idea what the problem is?The file is in its correct place in the /program files/mysql........... directory, just as itr says in the "references"
Regards

do you have the MySQL connector installed on the new machine?

you might also need to remove the reference and add it again with the new file location if the dll file's location is different on the new machine.


you can also copy the MySQL connector dll into the bin folder of your project.

Seems like you have different version of MySql connector installed.
Easiest way to solve it is, find the Mysql.Data.dll in the Mysql connector installation folder on your development machine, and copy it together with your compiled exe files during the migration.

I moved the dll as suggested by philip and still cant compile, but the error has changed:

An error occurred creating the form. See Exception.InnerException for details.  The error is: Could not load file or assembly 'MySql.Data, Version=1.0.7.30072, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

install the MySql connector on the new machine, remove the reference to MySql from the project, then add it again, locating the MySql.Data.dll that was just installed.
