Problem:

After installing DevPartner, we receive the error below upon startup of Visual Studio.

Resolution:

Please perform the following steps in hopes of getting you past your issue:   

- Uninstall the DevPartner tool in your ADD/REMOVE Programs utility 
- Delete the Compuware folder in the C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files directory. 
- Delete the contents of the TEMP folder. 
- Perform a re-install of DevPartner.   

If the above solution does not work, then take note of Where Visual Studio is installed.  Some of our DevPartner packages get copied to the 'C' drive no matter where Visual Studio is installed(be it in C or another drive).  Therefore the error may be our hard coding the missing assembly in the error to the C drive. The workaround then is to manually copy the missing assembly to the drive that Visual Studio is installed in.
