Visual-studio – Could not load type ‘XXX.Global’

asp.netvisual-studio

Migrating a project from ASP.NET 1.1 to ASP.NET 2.0 and I keep hitting this error.

I don't actually need Global because I am not adding anything to it, but after I remove it I get more errors.

Best Solution

The reason I encounter this issue is because I change the build configuration. When I set a web project to x86, it changes the output path to bin\x86\Debug. However, the output path should be bin and the web server won't find the binaries because of this.

The solution thus is to change the output path of the website back to bin after you change the build configuration.
