Error Message Could not Load File or Assembly System.data.SqlServerCe

Issue: Error Message "Could not Load File or Assembly System.data.SqlServerCe"

Issue:

An error occurs after installing a Microvellum update:
"Could not load file or assembly 'System.data.SqlServerCe, Version 4.0.0.0....or one of its dependencies.
The system cannot find the file specified."

Solution:

This error occurs when updating to the newer 7.3 builds of V7  - it's looking for the SQL Compact 4.0 install.
Even though the user may be running in 32-bit mode with .mdb selected, the install is still looking for the Compact 4.0 and needs it installed before it will load the Toolbox.
Link to SQL Compact 4.0 install - make sure you run the appropriate build for your OS.
