Deploy Problem

Hello Support,

we get error after deploying MVC application with the last version of dotConnect. We did not have this problem with Version 7.1.58.0.
Error message:
Schema specified is not valid. Errors:
Models.DevArtDbContextDM.ssdl(2,84) : error 0004: Could not load file or assembly 'Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity, Version=7.8.301.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=09af7300eec23701' or one of its dependencies.

Our comment:
I am confused because actually there is no Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.dll with Version 7.8.301.0 in this deploy. The version for Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity is 7.8.301.6 and the version for Devart.Data.Oracle is 7.8.301.0. The Version 7.8.301.0 was set in the web.config file and in the licenses.licx file by dotConnect tools. Why it is looking for Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.dll Version 7.8.301.0?
The previous version of deploy had same Versions for both Devart.Data.Oracle and Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity 7.1.58.0. We did not have problem with this version.
Is the problem in different versions for two files?

Thankyou very much,
Vladimir

Problem Background and Solution:
After installing new version of dotConnect I have run Upgrade Tool from DevArt.
My assumption was that the tool checks compatibility of all referenced assamblies in the project with those of DevArt to be referenced by the upgrade tool. However, the tool made reference for Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity compatible with EntityFramework.dll of Version 6, although in the project there was reference to EntityFramework Version 4.4.0.0.
Somehow this is not a problem when application runs under Visual Studio. This is not the case with deploy package.
Therefore, it was necessary to remove reference to Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity for EF 6 and to create manuelly reference to Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity for EF 4 (Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.dll for all Versions of EF are installed by DevArt into the installation directory).
The error message from ASP.NET engine complaining about not found Devart.Data.Oracle.Entity.dll Version 7.8.301.6 was missleading.
The question that I still have - should the tool check compatibility before setting references or not? I would assume the answer to the question should be Yes.

This is correct.
