I have 2 applications successfully using the AppUpdater component. But this third one is giving me grief. I have removed the reference and readded. I have browsed to the the UpdateVersion.xml on the webserver without issue. I checked all the settings from the apps that worked against the one that is failing and location of the application is the only difference.

I don't get anything in the AppUpdate.log file.

I changed to the debug version of the AppUpdated and this is what I get when running from the dev environment.

APPMANAGER: Checking for updates.
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: File or assembly name Siebel_Rates.exe, or one of its dependencies, was not found.

APPMANAGER: New update NOT detected.

I am not sure how to determine what dependencies would be missing. The app runs fine the EXE and DLL's from my solution are all in the web locations.

Any ideas?
