WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog]
Today I came to get this warning and to my utmost dismay, I could not add my custom controls to another project. After digging it out, I could not get enough information. Therefore, I thought of sharing it with all.
The project hierarchy is like: I have a library which contains wrapper windows controls, another library utilizes these wrapper controls and this library contains custom user controls. Then I have the main project which utilizes these custom user controls. While adding the custom user control, I got the above warning and could not load the custom user controls.
To resolve the issue, I recompiled my library containing wrapper windows controls and added its reference to my custom user controls. I recompiled my custom user control library and added its reference to my main project. After that, all went fine.
Hope this may save some of your time.
Happy coding! :)
