Sometime back I started getting this error in all the forms in which AJAX tools were used. The thing worried me most is that there were no changes made to the project source code. Later a friend of mine found that it is happening because of the wrong AjaxControlToolkit.

As I feel this dll swap happens when a control is dragged from the Visual Studio toolbox because the toolbox is referenced to a newer version of the toolkit than the project was using.

If you are also getting this error simply delete all the AJAX related files and folders in your projects’ bin directory. Once you are done there should not be any folders such as ar, cs, de, etc. Also remove the AjaxControlToolkit.dll. Then copy the version of the toolkit dll your project was using earlier to the Bin directory. Now clean and build your project to see the error disappear.

If you are still getting the error after correctly doing all this you might be getting the error due to another reason causing the same error. Since there are many reasons for this same error you better check the internet for other reasons to find out the exact reason causing the error for you.
