Could not load file or assembly: The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference

asp.net c# devexpress entity-framework-6 xaf

Question

I have a Dev Express web application working fine in localhost but not on the live site.

I have logged the issue with Dev Express but am also logging it here because it may be a .net issue.

I have checked the references carefully in the project and cant find any out of date references.

The error log shows

I looked at this question about winforms but my problem is in webforms. I do see that some of the answers involved Dev Express. I Checked my licence file and it does not include old versions.

Accepted Answer

Looks like you missed updating an assembly reference in one of your modules.

Easiest fix is to run the DevExpress ProjectConverter (default location C:\Program Files (x86)\DevExpress 15.2\Components\Tools\Components). It will fix the references in all files (and subfolders).

If you have any more trouble, the DevExpress Support Center is the place to ask.
