This error occurs when you try to load mixed-mode assemblies created in older version of .NET in .NET 4. In such circumstances Older version of the assembly will fails to load.
Crystal reports still has a dependencies which target framework version 2.0. The database driver used to connect to ADO .NET Datasets (crdb_adoplus.dll) is compiled for framework 2.0.
Framework version 4.x run time is backward compatible with the older framework versions. But to enable this compatibility you need to add few configuration settings in your app.config .(web.config for web based applications)
Place the following in your app.config file
The above must be placed inside the <configuration></configuration> section. This will help the assembly made using the older run time version of framework to run correctly in the version 4.x.
This will solve the Could not load file or assembly crdb_adoplus Problem.
