    Hello,
    I am building two nearly identical sites with Sitefinity. The first site is ready and running both on my local machine and development server. I set up a copy of this site as a starting point for my second site. On the local machine I didn't run into any problems. On the server I can't get the copy to work though, I get the following error:
    Could not load file or assembly 'Telerik.Cms' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
    The file Telerik.Cms.dll exists in the bin directory, and the relevant user has permission to execute it.
    I created the second site by copying all files from the first one into the second web root. I created the second database from a backup of the first. Now I am guessing that I have a wrong path somewhere? Or do I need to grant permissions on any other files but the .dll's in the 'bin' directory?
    Help with this problem would be very much appreciated!!
    Thanks!
    Eva

    Hello eva hermes,

    Check whether you have the correct version of Telerik.Cms.dll and make sure that you do not have any compiled code that requires Telerik.Cms.dll and certain version of it. Please make sure that the assebly can be loaded by the host.- GAC or bin

    Sincerely yours,
