    Could not load file or assembly System.Web.Mvc


    I have created an ASP.NET web application (not an MVC application). When I deploy to a server running IIS 6, I get this error

    [FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.]
        Ext.Net.BaseControl.ResolveUrlLink(String url) +0   Ext.Net.ResourceManager.GetWebResourceUrl(Type type, String resourceName) +325   Ext.Net.ResourceManager.CheckLicense() +152   Ext.Net.ResourceManager.Page_PreRenderComplete(Object sender, EventArgs e) +34   System.Web.UI.Page.OnPreRenderComplete(EventArgs e) +8876298   System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) +2716
    Is there a reason why the ResourceManager is trying to use the MVC assembly and is there a way around it?

    The only ext code I need to replicate the error is

            <ext:ResourceManager ID="mcResourceManager" runat="server" />

    Ext.Net supports ASP.NET MVC functionality (System.Web.Mvc in assemblies references of Ext.Net project) therefore MVC 3 must be installed on the server

    Unfortunately, my target platform is Windows 2003 SP1 which cannot support MVC3.

    Anyway, thank you for letting me know.

    Hi Vladimir

    I just meant it requires SP2.

    This is not an Ext.Net problem, however I would suggest that you mention it as a system requirement as there is a difference between supporting mvc and depending on it.

    thanks again

    We will consider ability to release Ext.Net 2.1 without System.Web.Mvc requirement (two versions of Ext.Net: with and without MVC support)
