It seems that the update 7.5.2 was pulled because it was a broken update. Upon rolling back everything seems to work just fine.
Hoping that 7.5.2 comes with the missing VisualCronServer DLL.

I am trying to get the test client to work so I can learn how to use the API in my own project but I am having some issues.

My server version is 7.5.2;

When I first start the TestClient project it complains about the app.Config missing. I deleted that and then it complains about three API DLLs missing.
I am only able to find 2 of the DLLs "VisualCron.dll" and "VisualCronAPI.dll" but I can not locate "VisualCron - Server". So I commented out all code that references the server DLL. I can then start the project, upon entering my servers IP address, my username, password and then clicking connect I get:

Inner Exception
{"Could not load file or assembly 'Newtonsoft.Json, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=30ad4fe6b2a6aeed' or one of its dependencies.

Thanks for the report. The Newtonsoft.Json.dll reference has been removed for next build. We wil notify you when it is live again.

Other references you mentioned needs to be re-referenced from the main intall folder.
Please like  VisualCron on facebook!
The dll is removed in this beta:


However, you need to upgrade any Client and Server.
