I am running a web app on w2k3/IIS 6.0/ASP.net 2.0. This app runs fine on a different server. The error message I get is
Compiler Error Message: CS0006: Metadata file 'C:\WINDOWS\assembly\GAC_32\System.EnterpriseServices\18.104.22.168__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\System.EnterpriseServices.dll' could not be found
I have seen solutions to remove the "<identity impersonate="true" />" setting from the web.config file. That has not been helpful. Another solution was to delete the system.enterpriseservices.dll from C:\Windows\assembly. I have deleted the file, copied
a new .dll, and that did not work. I have reinstalled IIS and ASP.Net 2.0 as well. So far, no dice. Any other ideas are greatly welcomed!

This may be a dumb question, but is the assembly in the GAC on the deployment server? If it isn't, you should be able to add it by running "gacutil /if System.EnterpriseServices.dll" using the 2.0 version of gacutil.exe.

Thanks for the response. I just got the problem figured out today.
The file permissions were screwed up. Users did not have read and execute permissions to this folder:
After I fixed that I got a similar error message as before but it mentioned a system.enterpriseServices.Wrapper.dll and found out that this file was missing
Now it is running like a champ!

Thanks a ton! I would not have thought to look there. For some reason both the System.EnterpriseServices.dll AND System.EnterpriseServices.Wrapper.dll were missing. Copied them from a co-workers machine and am now set to go.
