FIXED - Unable to start fresh server: BadImageFormatException



FIXED: Problem was with Carbon files, Dev Team has resolved the issue!

Re-download the Carbon files, and re-install Carbon to resolve the problem



Server is not starting and only throwing an error:


BadImageFormatException: Could not resolve field token 0x04000042, due to: Could not load type of field 'Carbon.Bootstrap:_harmonyInstance' (3) due to: Could not resolve type with token 01000061 (from typeref, class/assembly HarmonyLib.Harmony, 0Harmony, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null) assembly:0Harmony, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null type:HarmonyLib.Harmony member:(null) signature:<none> assembly:E:\servers\Rust\rustdscarbon\carbon\managed\Carbon.Bootstrap.dll type:Bootstrap member:(null) signature:<none>

(Filename: <917e1e1cd7cc440585b944bb9512ff78> Line: 0)


This is fresh install from steamcmd, starting the server once to load everything and then quit in server console.

followed by copy/paste the Carbon files into the server directory, and trying to start the server again.


Is there anything that I have done wrong?
Seems strait forward, what to do to get it  going.


Anyone had a similar problem? Appreciate any help in the matter!
