    I am running the trial version of Telerik controls on a windows 7 64 bit os.
    I am running Visual Studio 2008.

    I have just downloaded the trial version and am in the process of simply validating that the controls work on a copy of my production web project and added the Rad Date Input and the Rad Date Picker.
    I am able to build the project without issue.
    However when I attempt to run the project in the environment i get the following error when accessing the page where I added the controls.

    * Note that in attempting to resolve this I've added a reference to the designer to my project

    BindingFailure was detected

    Message: The assembly with display name 'Telerik.Web.UI.Skins' failed to load in the 'Load' binding context of the AppDomain with ID 2. The cause of the failure was: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Web.UI.Skins' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
    File name: 'Telerik.Web.UI.Skins'

    === Pre-bind state information ===

    LOG: Policy not being applied to reference at this time (private, custom, partial, or location-based assembly bind).
    LOG: The same bind was seen before, and was failed with hr = 0x80070002.

    I'm kind of dead in the water. I would appreciate any help / suggestions.

    Hello Bill,

    Do you have custom code that handles the AssemblyLoad or AssemblyResolve events? If yes, try to handle the error there so it does not raise an exception on the page. If the error is only displayed in your logs and the controls on the page show up fine, then you can safely ignore it - the logged exceptions will be fixed in the next RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX release (Q2 2011).

    If you see an exception on the page and there are no custom handlers for the AssemblyLoad and AssemblyResolve events in your code, please open a support ticket and send us a sample project that we can use to reproduce the problem locally. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
