I have an application that works fine on my Test Machine.  It also works fine if I host the application on Vista and on Windows 2005 Server.


I however am experiencing problems hosting the application on Windows 2008.  All the pages that require Authorisation fail with the same configuration error - Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Practices.CompositeWeb' or one of its dependencies.


The DLL in in the Bin folder, so I’m suspecting some dependency.   Using ‘Dependancy Walker” it appears this DLL depends upon MSCOREE.DLL.  It is at this point I am lost as to what to do next.


Does anyone know why I would be experiencing this error? 

How can I be sure the 2008 server is looking in the Bin folder?
