Lizard TF fails if V9 TF dlls are present but not V8


Building a dotNet 3.5 version against TF version 9 dlls.
Original issue:
After using the Install package for .030 I looked for Start menu items to configure. i could not find them and I navigated to the install directory and executed the MonitorLizard.exe. The GUI comes up however when it tries to execute a TFS client call it raises an exception. I have TFS client installed, it is integrated into VS 2008 as well. All of the TFS dlls appear to be located in the PrivateAssemblies directory
************** Exception Text **************

I've faced with the same issue.
Fortunately, I've been able to find a workaround: "Drag" the missing dll into GAC and restart MonitorLizard.exe

I have the same problem, fixed by installing Team Explorer 2008.
Now, I have the following error message : LoadLibrary "C:\Program Files\Lizard\LizardTF\CLizardShExt.dll" Fails.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall Lizard but the problem remains.

Visual Studio is not installed on the machine, since my purpose is to use a light TFS client.

Many Thnkas for your help.
