This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • In the application's configuration file, you used an HREF attribute in the codebase element to specify an assembly.
  • The URL that is specified in the HREF attribute points to a Web server that is unavailable.
Note This problem occurs even when the referenced assembly is present in the assembly cache and in the Windows Internet Explorer temporary cache.
