Could not load file or assembly 'Newtonsoft.Json, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=30ad4fe6b2a6aeed' or one of its dependenc

I just started getting this error in multiple projects after upgrading to 8.7.2.

I validated the Newtonsoft.Json.dll is present in the bin folder:

I even copied over the Newtonsoft.Json.dll from a backup prior to the 8.7.2 upgrade and the same result occurs.

I ended up uninstalling 8.7.2, installing 8.7.1 and restored my entire Code OnTime folder from a backup prior to the upgrade (about a week ago), and at first the projects compiled no problem without modifications, but when I added a new controller to the data model, this issue occurs again.

I was doing some research and one of the third-party .NET components that is being used is Telerik.Reporting. Another forum/blog post mentioned that the Json version dependency might be relating to Telerik.Reporting (which has not been updated for months).

Any clues to help resolve this issue?
