Resolved: EA Plugin refuses to work after update

It may occur, that you update an EA Addin, and instantly it fails to work.

In my case, it failed while writing to the settings-file located in user-temp folder.
Although it was build for .NET Framework 3.5, the error message was something like this:
“Could not load file or assembly ‘System, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′ or one of its dependencies. The System cannot find the file specified.”

After researching the internet, I ended up with the following solution:
delete the content of the folder “C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Sparx_Systems_Pty_Ltd”

this is, where .NET stores information about your EA-addin. It will be recreated having the correct values on next EA start.

And here is the excerpt, which lead to the exception:
<section name=”LL.EA.Plugin.dll” type=”System.Configuration.ClientSettingsSection, System, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089″ allowExeDefinition=”MachineToLocalUser” requirePermission=”false” />
