Hi, recently our company has updated development laptops with windows 10. After Installing Visual Studio 2015 and telerik controls I receive below error:
Error 'Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Web.UI, Version=2016.3.1027.45, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4' or one of its dependencies. Invalid pointer (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80004003 (E_POINTER))'
However everything is working fine on old developer machine.
OS : Windows 10 Pro
IDE: Visual Studio 2015 Update 3
P.S - We do not have installed any previous version of Visual studio on new laptop.

It says that Error is in LC file. Please Look at attached. The error appeared today again and I spent almost 3 hours to get it resolved. Few other information
1. Project is not referencing telerik dlls from GAC. It is referencing from a specific folder on machine.
2. This time it is vs 2017 IDE.
LC comes from License Compiler or lc.exe which means that this issue is most probably caused by the licenses.licx file. This file is located in the Properties section of your project but sometimes it might not be visible in the Solution Explorer. Please delete this file and rebuild your project.
Please let us know if this helps.
Try this, it worked for me.
Right-click the .dll file and click the 'Unblock' button on the General
tab near the bottom. The button goes away after it is unblocked (in case
you don't see it). Found the solution here:
