HtmlAgilityPack Reference not found only after building my application

c# html-agility-pack visual-studio

Question

I have been using HTMLAgilityPack from within Visual Studio without a single problem. I extracted HtmlAgilityPack to my HD, and added the file HtmlAgilityPack.dll as a reference to my C# application. Again everything is working splendid from within Visual Studio. I then built my solution and attempted to run my application outside of visual studio (as a standalone desktop executable file) and I get the following error when I run my application:

"Unhanded exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will .... Could not load file or assembly 'HtmlAgilityPack, Version=1.4.0.0. Culture=neutral.PublicKeyToken=bd319b...' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

How is is possible that the system can't find the file specified? Visual Studio had no trouble finding it...

I can provide any additional information upon request.

Thank you for any help with this one - Evan

Accepted Answer

I figured this one out. The problem was that I was using an EXPERIMENTAL copy of HtmlAgilityPack. I changed over to the 'full' version HERE and everything works great now!
