    I have a project where a library references an older version of another library.

    Having a redirect in app.config and

    <EnhancerDoNotCheckVersionOfReferencedAssemblies Condition="'$(EnhancerDoNotCheckVersionOfReferencedAssemblies)'==''">false</EnhancerDoNotCheckVersionOfReferencedAssemblies>

    in my OpenAccessNuGet.targets file is of no use.

    I always get this build error:

    System.IO.FileLoadException: Die Datei oder Assembly "idee5.Common, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=69ecdbed3e0936e3" oder eine Abhängigkeit davon wurde nicht gefunden. Allgemeine Ausnahme (Ausnahme von HRESULT: 0x80131500)
    Dateiname: "idee5.Common, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=69ecdbed3e0936e3" ---> System.Exception: The referenced assembly 'E:\NuGetPackages\idee5.Common.3.0.6\lib\netstandard2.0\idee5.Common.dll' has the wrong version; expected Version= but found Version=
       bei Telerik.OpenAccess.SPI.AssemblyProvider.LoadFromReferences(String assemblyName)
       bei Telerik.OpenAccess.SPI.AssemblyProvider.RefResolveEventHandler(Object sender, ResolveEventArgs args)

    I am using the last available version 2016.2.822.1.

    How can I fix this?

    Kind regards

    Hello Bernd,

    I believe you have to set EnhancerDoNotCheckVersionOfReferencedAssemblies = true to enable the desired behavior.
    Also redirects applies in app.config/web.config apply to the application that you are developing not to Enhancer.exe.
    If you have trouble using the build argument you may want to try editing Enhancer.exe.config (found under $(SolutionDir)\packages\Telerik.DataAccess.Fluent.*\tools\enhancer\) and apply the redirects there. This is not the recommended approach as the config file may get overwritten when you restore nuget packages.

    Hi Viktor.

    Thank you for the fast answer. Works like a charm.

    And I am still sorry about DataAccess being deprecated. A great tool and EF is IMHO no match for it.
