This error means that your program contains a reference to Gigasoft.ProEssentials.dll but that the dll could not be found.  Check to ensure that this file is in the same directory as your application's executable.  If it is not, ensure that you have the reference properties set so that it will copy the reference locally; e.g. -Capture.JPG
