Error deploying app with reference to WPF toolkit

I have a wpf application that contains elements from the wpf toolkit. I can run the project fine in visual studio but when i try to publish it and run the generated .exe i get the following error:

the application requires that assembly wpftoolkit 3.5.40128.1 be installed in the global assembly cache

Open in new window

I have these dlls added as a reference, when i remove any reference to these the project deploys and runs fine.

I get this error on my development machine and any other machine, i've tried setting all prerequisites to 'include' but this made no difference

Have you installed the wpftoolkit on the machines you are running the program on? You will need to do that. At the very least, add a copy of the DLL to C:\Windows\Assembly (aka GAC or Global Assembly Cache).

You can try adding a copy of the DLL to your bin folder, that might work as well.
