I posted this message on the error groups but I didn't get any response so I am putting it here. I did a clean install of CAB and the lab. I tried the first exercise. The build was successful but when I ran, right off the bat I got an error saying "Unable to Load CustomUI dll" I verified the dll got copied over to the project local directory. When I checked the inner exception, it was complaing some error in permissions. Did any one get this message? If so how can I resolve this error?

I found the problem. Even though I removed the old CAB, the project files remaind in the computer and my solution was still pointing to the old dll. I changed the dll back to the new dll and it all worked. Sorry for the confusion.
