System.IO.FileNotFoundException when using WebGrease via Commandline



I'm trying to use WebGrease via command line (also tried Developer Command Prompt for VS2013). When I run "wg options", I'm getting following error (screenshot attached)

Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'WebGrease, Version=1.6.5135.21930, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
at WebGrease.Program.Main(String[] args)


I tried on 3 different development machines. Same issue is present on all.

I'm using:
  • WebGrease.1.6.0
  • Visual Studio 2013 Update 3
  • Windows 8.1 (64 bit)
What am I missing?
Any help solving this issue is much appreciated.

It is looking for WebGrease library. So what you could do is copying the WebGrease.dll into the tools folder.

Even after copying the .dll running 'wg options' returns 'An error was encountered while processing your request. Please verify your inputs and try again'
