Dear all,

I have installed MRDS 2008 R3 and I have downloaded the latest samples from the promrds codeplex website. The code from all the chapters compiles without any problem but when I try and run the Corobot simulation example from Chapter 6. I receive the following error:

*** Service creation failure most common reasons:

 -Service contract identifier in manifest or Creat request does not match Contract.Identifier

- Service references a different version of runtime assemblies.


May I also mention that I am running Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (updated) on a Windows 7 machine.

Has anyone encountered the same issue and knows the solution to it? Looking forward to some help.

Please verify that there are Corobot DLLs in the bin folder. If not, try recompiling the Corobot service.

Hello Trevor,

Thank you for the reply. The problem was caused because I wasn't debugging with dsshost32.exe. Now it works!
