Could not load file or assembly ‘Microsoft.ResourceManagement

I got this when trying to get into User Profile on Central Admin: Well actually I get “File Not Found”.. but who looks at SharePoint errors.. its the log we are after.

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.ResourceManagement, Version=4.0.2450.34..

What about my mother? Oh.. it’s an error.. oh.. it is SharePoint.

But I still can’t get to my User Profile service

1. I tried stopping the User Profile Service and User Profile Synchronization Service and then restart IIS and the 2 services from central admin.. it did nothing but waste 5 minutes of my life.

2.Then I Bing a bit and find this blog pointing me  to this hotfix  3. I download the Hotfix and do step 1 again and amazingly it works.

I am always amazed by solutions that take less than, say, 17 trillion hours to implement on SharePoint.

Woohoo Go team!
