Hi All,

I have recently downloaded and installed AS Performance workbench but encountering following error when the control navigates to Database Name. 

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.AnalysisServices, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.File name: 'Microsoft.AnalysisServices, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91'   at ASWorkbench.ASLoadTest.txtServerName_Leave

Please somebody tell me the reason because of which it is coming and how to fix it. Also where can I find my SSAS Server/Instance. 

Any kind of help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Ton,

I also faced the same issue. However, I checked that I was using Sql Server 2012 and this Microsoft.AnalysisServices version 10.0.0.0 is used with Sql sever 2008 R2. So, I made a small change in the ASWorkbench.exe.config file from

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
<startup><supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/></startup>
</configuration>

to

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
<startup><supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/></startup>
<runtime>
<assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
<dependentAssembly>
<assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.AnalysisServices" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" culture="neutral"/>
<bindingRedirect oldVersion="10.0.0.0" newVersion="11.0.0.0" />
</dependentAssembly>
</assemblyBinding>
</runtime>
</configuration>

This helps to redirect the older version to the newer version and it worked for me.

Let me know if you still face any issue.

Thanks,
