    Resolved [RESOLVED] Deployment Problem & PowerPacks 10.0.0.0

    Visual Basic 2010 Express

    After creating the deployment files, when trying to install on another machine, I get the following message:

    Unable to install or run the application. The application requires that assembly Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs Version 10.0.0.0 be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first.
    I have tried to find the power pack but am unable to.

    I also came across the "App runs on my computer, but now others" thread and in particular post #10, but am wondering whether this only applies to the full Pro version as I do not see how I can do this.

    Thanks for the link.

    What I did after reading that thread is to:

    1. In the properties page, navigate to References tab.

    2. Removed the references to 10.0 PowerPacks.Vs

    I then created the install and tested it on a 64bit windows machine which was giving me the problems. It worked.

    However, since starting the thread, I removed the rectangle shape that probably started all this, so this is not really a cure in the long run.

    As I understand it, the file should be part of the deployment, but I do not know how to accomplish that. I also find it odd that version 10 cannot be downloaded from Microsoft.

    I know this thread is old but for anyone having this problem like I did, all you have to do is go to application properties/references. Look for the reference name and click on it. Then in the properties panel set copy local to true. Then re-publish and it should work.

    Unfortunately none of the solutions in this thread worked for me but I found that if I copy and paste the Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs.dll into the same folder that holds the executable then the program runs fine.

    I also found that the dll can be put in c:\Windows\assembly but the assembly folder has to be open to copy the dll into it.
