That file may have failed to copy for some reason during installation, although I"m not sure whether that should be part of your Windows installation or a different .NET Framework installation. It might not be a bad idea to try to repair the .NET installation either way. Either that or try just copying that file from another machine if you can.

Ok. I did a bit of digging on the web. After a while I came upon these suggestions:Tools > Options > Debugging > Native and check Load DLL ExportsDid not work for me.Tools-> Options-> Debugging-> Symbols. Select checkbox "Microsoft Symbol Servers". Visual Studio will download PDBs automatically.

Works. But Visual Studio connects to the Microsoft Servers. A definite no-no for the company that I am contracting to. No internet access allowed from control system computers.Tools -> Options -> Debugging -> Output Window -> Module Load Messages -> OffRemoves these messages, see below:
