could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.StdFormat'

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I've compiled the codes and built an installer. The program works on my development machine. If I install on another test machine (fresh install) ... running the program causes this error:

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.StdFormat, Version=7.0.33000.00". The system cannot file the file specified.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Will adding the 'Microsoft.StdFormat' in References and setting False for Copy Local solve this problem?

Any help is much appreciated ... thanks.
