Load Control Template file (TaxonomyPicker.ascx failed) – ERROR

If you get the following error:

Load control template file /_controltemplates/TaxonomyPicker.ascx failed: Could not load type ‘Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls.TaxonomyPicker’ from assembly ‘Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c’.

You need to check that the TaxonomoyPicker.ascx file has not been modified

  1. Open your 14-hive folder (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14)
  2. Open the TEMPLATE folder
  3. Open the CONTROLTEMPLATES folder
  4.  Find the TaxonomyPicker.ascx file and open it in notepad
  5. On the first line check if you have &#44 instead of ,

<%@ Control className=”TaxonomyPickerControl” Language=”C#” Inherits=”Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls.TaxonomyPicker,Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c” %>

Replace ‘&#44’ with ‘,’ , the correct line should look like

<%@ Control className=”TaxonomyPickerControl” Language=”C#” Inherits=”Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls.TaxonomyPicker, Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c” %>

Save the file, the error should be gone now.
