    Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Web.Design, Version=2009.3.1208.20, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


    For some reason I am getting this error on the server.  The application only has the assemblies in the BIN folder.  The version is says it can't load is the version in the BIN. 

    Nothing specific to this project has changed.  The only thing I know that recently we upgraded to SQL Server 2008 on that server.

    Any ideas of what might be going on??

    Hello Robert,


    When using VS 2008, both the Telerik.Web.UI.dll and Telerik.Web.Design.dll files should reside either in the GAC or the bin folder of your application. Do you have a reference to the Telerik.Web.Design assembly in your project/GAC?

    Please review the following blog post in order to avoid the unexpected behavior:

    Meet Telerik.Web.Design.dll
