If there is any proxy assigned when accessing after deploying then try after removing it.

If still problem is there check for assemblies in web.config and GAC folder.

Hope this solves your problem.

Check your bin folder on the deployed system. It should contain AjaxControlToolkit.dll.

The AjaxControlToolkit only references System.XXX libraries. That means that either the full DLL is not available, you use the wrong .NET version (.NET 3.5 required) or the file is corrupt. Since you mention .NET 2.0 (which is the actual version underneath .NET 3.5) it may be a version conflict. Try to upgrade to .NET 3.5 and try again.
