I am trying to establish a connection to InfluxDB database. After I publish my c# MVC app on IIS and run it, I get this error:

Message : Could not load file or assembly 'netstandard, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc7b13ffcd2ddd51' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

I am not sure what netstandard.dll I need. I changed .NET Framework from 4.5.2 to 4.6.1, but I didn't get rid of the error. How could I solve this?

What I have tried:

The function which reads from database:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using InfluxDB.Client;
using InfluxDB.Client.Api.Domain;
using InfluxDB.Client.Api.Service;
using InfluxDB.Client.Core;

namespace ServerSide
    public class ReadInfluxDB
        private readonly string Token = "TestTokenWEBICC";

        public async Task Main()
            var client = new InfluxDBClient("http://localhost:8086", Token);

            var flux = "from(bucket:\"TestDB\") |> range(start: 0)";

            var queryApi = client.GetQueryApi();

            // QueryData
            var tables = await queryApi.QueryAsync(flux);//, "org_id"

            var id = tables[0].Records;
            var measure = tables[1].Records;
            var val = tables[3].Records;
            var time = tables[4].Records;
            var count = id.Count();

            List<Value> Values = new List<Value>();
            tables.ForEach(table =>
                table.Records.ForEach(record =>
                    Console.WriteLine($"{record.GetTime()}: {record.GetValueByKey("_value")}");

            for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
                Value _value = new Value();
                _value.DateAndTime = Convert.ToDateTime(time[i].GetTimeInDateTime());
                _value.Measure = Convert.ToString(measure[i].GetValue());
                _value.Val = Convert.ToDouble(val[i].GetValue());

    public class Value
        public DateTime DateAndTime { get; set; }
        public string Measure { get; set; }
        public double Val { get; set; }

You are specifically telling it to load an assembly "netstandard" Version= and the error message is pretty specific: The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. Which means that the versions don't match.

Try removing all references in your project and add them back using the installed versions.

Thanks for replying! If I remove the netstandar.dll from References, I get errors in my function. What should be this dll replaced with?
You're referencing a library or NuGet package which is build for .NET Standard 2.1; that library doesn't support any version of .NET Framework.

.NET Standard | Microsoft Learn[^]

You need to check your project's dependencies.

Thanks for replying! According to the table from the link you provided, .NET Framework doesn't support .NET Standard 2.1. In this case what should I do to solve the error? If I remove the netstandar.dll from References, I get errors in my function. What should be this dll replaced with?

If you're using .NET Framework, then you need to stick to libraries that work in .NET Framework or .NET Standard 2.0 or lower.

If you want help to fix the errors, then you're going to need to tell us what the errors are.

I am using .NET Framework 4.6.1. If I delete the netstandard.dll, I get the same error after publishing my app. The code is build without any error.

As I said, one of your references depends on .NET Standard 2.1, and will not work with .NET Framework. You need to find out which one, and replace it.

Is there a list of references that depend on .NET Standard 2.1? I have many references added on my project, so it's like a lottery to guess which one(s) depends of .NET Standard 2.1.
