Apparently, the FTB forum at http://freetextbox.com/forums/22/ShowForum.aspx
isn't very active.
I need some kind of text box control that allows formatting AND is free
so I came across freetextbox. I followed the installation procedure from
But, those instructions weren't very helpful. When you download the
latest version, it comes in a zip file with a whole bunch of files
within, including three freetextbox.dll files. I have no idea which one
to use so I just picked the latest one (by creation date), which was
only a few minutes difference from the other two.
I copied the FreeTextBox.dll file into this folder:
I then applied this to the top of my ftp.aspx page:
<%@ Register TagPrefix="FTB" Namespace="FreeTextBoxControls"
And then I placed the control:
<FTB:FreeTextBox id="FreeTextBox1" runat="Server" />
When I run the page, I get this error:

Did I install this control/assembly correctly? What am I doing wrong?
Perhaps there is another free text box control with formatting
capabilities out there somewhere that I could use that installs easier
I'm not very experiences installing my own assemblies. I'm using the 2.0
