We have some VisualCron API code running successfully in Visual Studio. Now we want to run this code as a .NET code execute task directly in the VisualCron scheduler. When running the task we get the following error message:

Exception in Task: Could not load file or assembly 'file:///D:\Temp\ao0sm03b.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

We are also not able to add the VisualCron dll's to the references, everytime we open the reference window again, the dll's are disappeared.

Is there something we missed ?

Thank you
Andreas

Hi,

VisualCron.dll is not referencing any external dlls. Are you sure your project is .NET 4.0?

Yes, the Visual Studio project is .NET 4 and is working fine. But the same code as .NET code execute task is not working - I assume that the .NET code execute task is using .NET 4 ?

It is possible to run .NET code as an excecutable which is referencing the visualcron dll. I did this for a long time now. You also an run an assembly task if you made your own dll.
You can not create a .NET task and reference the Visualcron dll. This is not supported.

Due to upgrading Visualcron to newer versions, you have to upgrade your .NET app also. It needs to have the latest Visualcron dll's.
I solved this by make use of Powershell and reference the dll's in the installation folder. This way I always have the latest dll's and I do not have to recompile my task anymore.
