cannot load file or assembly

Story by Abhilash on SQL Server


All of a sudden, my SQLDataSource connection failed with an error:

"Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91′ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

All this happened, when i try to connect my GridView with SQLDataSource control. I's trying to connect SQL Server 2005 from Visual Studion 2008 SP1. The same can be solved my installing:

These are the executable from SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack- a list of standalone packages, that provide additional value to SQL Server 2008.

That's all for now.
