It looks like OpenAccess does not find the mapping during schema update or runtime. Pls. have a look into the programmer's guider where we describe the way of reading the mapping nodes. You should always have the <reference> sections in the app.config file up to date. You can always check if OpenAccess reads a section by adding a node with a crappy name. If you see the error with this wrong node we are reading it.
