I have converted an asp.net app from visual studio 2005 to 2008.  It works fine on my dev pc at work - I have just copied the project to my home laptop running vista and I am getting the error

Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies.

Know what steps do I need to do to get this to work?

The easiest thing to do is add System.Web.Extensions.dll and System.Web.Extensions.Design.dll to the bin folder of your application.
This has worked for me :)

You can download a .NET 2.0 redistributable, but I thought that 3.5 was just an upgrade of 2.0 as opposed to being a new version (like 1.1 and 2.0 for example).
Therefore, the newer version should be ok - have you checked that your web.config file is pointing to the correct dlls?

hi

Yep - I think its to do with the AJAXControlTtoolkit.dll - this is version 1.1

Now all the controls in the app are referenced like this

On each page

<%@ Register Assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"
    Namespace="System.Web.UI" TagPrefix="asp" %>

<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="cc1" %>

Now if it works on my work environmnet and not at home - I really do not want to change too much.

Hmm, what would be the best way forward.

Here is the web.config

                        <add assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>
                        <add assembly="System.Web.Extensions.Design, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>

Sorry to ask a stupid question here but did you already download the AJAX Extensions that you need first if you're in .NET 2.0?  I ran into that problem setting up AJAX in VS2005 b/c I initially thought all you needed was the toolkit and got that same error you mentioned (yeah yeah I know, go ahead and laugh).

HI

I did that but now I get the error

The type 'System.Web.UI.ScriptManager' exists in both 'c:\Windows\assembly\GAC_MSIL\System.Web.Extensions\1.0.61025.0__31bf3856ad364e35\System.Web.Extensions.dll' and 'c:\Windows\assembly\GAC_MSIL\System.Web.Extensions\3.5.0.0__31bf3856ad364e35\System.Web.Extensions.dll'

I did a search for 1.0 and replaced with 3.5.0.0 and it now compiles OK but now its unable to start debugging on the webserver.  This is on my new vista laptop

Any specific error message coming up or does it just say debugging can't be started?
