licenses.licx invalid - "Could not load file or assembly"

Posted on 2011-09-26
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am trying to write my own server controls and have done so pretty effectively.  Now I find that about each time I compile my project, I have to manually delete the "licenses.licx" file from the "MyProject" folder or I get the "Could not load file or assmbly"... message.

Did I do something wrong?  Is there a fix?

What is the licenses.licx file for?  Do you have 3rd party controls?

It just says that you are trying to create server controls, not that you are trying to license these said controls--gotta test assumptions, ya know *BIG GRIN*.  Are you saying that you have a control assembly, and when referencing the control assembly from another application, that you need to remove the license file?  How did you generate the .licx file?

I don't generate the licx file.  I don't know why it shows up.  Unless it has to do with the licensing I am implementing but I don't create it in any code.

Using 3rd party components I did have the same problem.
But only when I switch to 'Design' view for a page / usercontrol it automatically adds the licenses.licx file to the properties folder of the project.

I don't know why. It's kinda stupid.
I just don't switch to design view any more and if I do (than it's by accident because I hate design view), I have to remove it manually...
It seems that there is no other work around for this (stupid) behaviour...

Do you have any 3rd party controls, like Infragistics?
