MC67 Please install ‘’

I have a .NETCF application which communicates with a remote web service.  When I catch exceptions, I get the message:

System.Net.WebException: An error message is available for this exception but cannot be displayed because these messages are optional and are not currently installed on this device. Please install ‘’ for Windows Mobile 5.0 and above or  ‘’ for other platforms. Restart the application to see the message.


I have installed ‘’ from the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 developers tool kit.  I also tried one that I found elsewhere on this site, but I still get the above message.  How can I fix this problem?


I found an article on fixing this problem (Fixing exception messages on the .NET Compact Framework 3.5 – Random ramblings about Technology) and the trace is:

Loading module [\windows\System.SR.dll]

Loading module [\windows\System.SR.exe]

Attempt to load [\windows\System.SR.exe] has failed (err 0x80001000).     <== This file does not exist on the device

Failed to load [System.SR, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=969DB8053D3322AC]




So, the file System.SR.exe doesn't exist on my device.  Is there somewhere I can get this file?
