Cached url with ajax version causing unhandled error with asp.net c#

I have a .net 4 website on IIS7 and use Ajaxcontrol toolkit. Whenever I upgrade to a newer version an ajaxcontrol toolkit, I have months when a search engine uses cached urls with the ajax version in.  The information is contained in the url query string and because the information contains an old dll version for ajax which is not available it causes an unhandled error. I would like to
1. stop this form of url if possible but dont know how.
2. handle the error and provide a 301 redirect to the correct url (less the query string)

You might need to ask me a few questions here so we can get to the route of the problem.
The current version of the Ajax tool kit Im using is 4.1.60919
This page is my example.

Here is an example of the error.

Hi,

I suggest you to remove all the references of AjaxControlTookit and install using NuGet -

Hope it helps u...

I have already uninstalled and installed with NuGet.
I dont think this is caused by Ajax installation references not being correct. Something to do with combining of scripts as in the url concerned a value for "CombinedScripts" is passed in the query string parameters.
 The error is being generated at the early point where the Toolkitscript manager is going to combine scripts. It is then trying to get the incorrect assembly reference(old version of ajaxcontrol toolkit). Is it possible to try and trap this error by creating an error handler and binding it to this code that runs. I beleive it is before the main pipeline begins but I do not fully understand this.

This might help
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/delay/archive/2007/06/11/script-combining-made-easy-overview-of-the-ajax-control-toolkit-s-toolkitscriptmanager.aspx

How do scripts actually get combined? [Technical]
 
Script combining is a two-stage process.
 
The first stage takes place during the normal ASP.NET page lifecycle when ToolkitScriptManager overrides ScriptManager's OnLoad method to initialize its state and its OnResolveScriptReference method to find out when script references are being resolved. The initialization code in OnLoad consists of adding a HiddenField to the page and using it to track which scripts have already been loaded by the browser. The handling of OnResolveScriptReferences is a little more involved: the script reference is checked for combinability (i.e., does the assembly's ScriptCombine attribute allow the script to take part in script combining) and the script reference is changed to point to the URL of a combined script file. In this manner, all scripts that are part of the same combined script file get the same URL and the ScriptManager class outputs that URL to the page exactly once. Notably, because scripts may have a strict ordering, the presence of an uncombinable script in the middle of combinable scripts will result in two combined script files being generated (the first consisting of the scripts coming before the uncombinable script and the second consisting of the scripts after it).

Thanks for the suggestion but that is not the cause of the problem as this happens on the live website.

Hi,

I tried accessing this link - http://www.printer-ink-toner.co.uk/pc/brother-mfc74200-drum and seems to be working fine!

Is there any scenario, where i can replicate the issue?

I have managed to place a fix in place. I put some code on the error.apx page to read the forwarded url of the problem page and if it had my products location then I do a 301 redirect to the correct location. It is not a nice a fix as I was looking for but it will do for now. Thanks for your efforts!
