How to fix "Could not load assembly System.Data.SQLite.dll"


When I copy a working C# application to another machine, I ran into the following error.

"Could not load assembly System.Data.SQLite.dll or one of its dependencies."

The C# application was using SQLite and looked like some dependencies were missing in that machine.


In order to figure out what kind of dependencies are missing, I used Dependancy Walker where it showed missing component.

System.Data.SQLite.dll MSVC dll missing

So it turned out that MSVCR110.dll was missing. MSVCR110.dll is MS C++ Runtime DLL and can be installed from Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2012. Install MSVC++ Redist 2012 x86 edition from this link:

Please note that you might be missing different version of MS C++ Runtime.
