- I've built a .NET 4.0 Windows Forms app...
- I've added it to a .NET 4.0 Setup project...
- My DEV PC has .NET 4.0 Framework installed...
- When I attempt to install the resultant .msi, I get an error message...
System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly...This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded.
- On a DEV VM
- 32 bit
- Windows 7
- Visual Studio 2010.
- The Setup project has a folder for Detected Dependencies...
- In there is listed Microsoft .NET Framework...
- When you double-click that, you get a Launch Conditions window...
- Under Launch Conditions, is listed the .NET Framework version...
- This was set incorrectly.

I get this a lot trying to load a 32bit DLL in a 64bit/AnyCpu(on 64 bit machine) binary.
fix for that is set the project to 32bit.
