Description:

mscorlib: System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates\, Version\={BuildVersion}\, Culture\=neutral\, PublicKeyToken\=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The given assembly name or codebase was invalid. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131047)

File name: 'Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates\, Version\={BuildVersion}\, Culture\=neutral\, PublicKeyToken\=31bf3856ad364e35'

at System.Reflection.AssemblyName.nInit(Assembly& assembly, Boolean forIntrospection, Boolean raiseResolveEvent)

at System.Reflection.Assembly.InternalLoad(String assemblyString, Evidence assemblySecurity, StackCrawlMark& stackMark, Boolean forIntrospection)

at System.Reflection.Assembly.Load(String assemblyString)

at Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Common.GateLoader.LoadGate(Guid gateIdentifier)

 

Cause: In the password reset web.config file there are four "add gateId" entries. In each of these entries the build version was missing. It was listed as Version={BuildVersion}.

E.g.: <add gateId="45C4D8BB-D34C-453d-8346-C9061A2A1E4C" registrationType="Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates.QAGateControl, Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates, Version={BuildVersion}, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"

 

Resolution: Change the version to the actual version in use, e.g. Version=4.1.2273.0.

E.g.: <add gateId="45C4D8BB-D34C-453d-8346-C9061A2A1E4C" registrationType="Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates.QAGateControl, Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates, Version=4.1.2273.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" validationType="Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates.QAGateControl, Microsoft.IdentityManagement.CredentialManagement.Portal.Gates, Version=4.1.2273.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" />
