Could not load file or assembly System.EnterpriseServices

Could not load file or assembly System.EnterpriseServices, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a or one of its dependencies.


When starting the software an error message may occur: "Could not load file or assembly 'System.EnterpriseServices, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The System cannot find the file specified."


This is a Microsoft .NET Framework error message and the likely causes are: A Microsoft .NET Framework file System.EnterpriseServices.dll assembly is missing or corrupted in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) folder (\Windows\Assembly). Or, the file in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) does not match with the Microsoft.NET 2.0 Framework version.

This error message may display on computers where Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, Service Pack 2 is installed.


If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8:

Repair the .NET 2.0 Framework installation.
Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Command prompt

Right click on command prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'

In the Command Prompt, type: "sfc /scannow" (with the quote marks) System File Checker - SFC - will scan your system and (hopefully) fix some of your system files. Restart your computer
