Hi, I have been trying to generate the help from a silverlight class library but I keep getting the same error. I have added the .csproj file as document source along with the .dll and .xml file. The assembly references come from a different folder "~/programfiles/Microsoft SDKs/Silverlight/v2.0/Reference assemblies". I tried adding the "Assembly binding redirection" but I dont quite understand how to use it. Can anyone help? Here is the build log for the project. ------------------------------- [Sandcastle Help File Builder Utilities, version] Creating output and working folders... ------------------------------- Finding tools...

Thanks for the reply, but its not the case in my case. :)

Here are the properties of one of the references I have in the project :

Description: System.dll

Path : c:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v2.0\Reference Assemblies\system.dll

Runtime version : v2.0.50727

Specific Version: False

Strong Name : True


Same is the case with rest of the assemblies like System.Core, System.Net, System.Xml, System.Windows, and System.Windows.Browser.

Any other way I can resolve the issue?

Unfortunately, I don't use Silverlight so I can't say how you might work around the problem.  You might try posting over in the Sandcastle project forum to see if you can get a response.  I know other people have done it.
