  • now no error is coming and my application started working fine.

    i was getting problem of assembly not loaded because i have not done changes of web part

    then i copied webpart assembly from GAC (old sever) to new server GAC and changes in web.config file in new server.

    Now portal started working.

    Thanks to all of you.

    love u  all/.
