No error attached. What DLL does it complain about? Are you using any 3rd party controls? There must be a DLL which is GAC and is not deployed on the server (or missing from bin folder).

Is OTforDept your own DLL? It is built against a newer version of ASP.NET than your website.

OTforDept is the application's name.The server has vs 2008 and vs 2010 with .net framework 2.0 and 3.5. However, my application was developed on client with vs2010 and .net framework 4.0. Will installing .net 4.0 on the server rectify this issue?
