System.IO.FileNotFoundException When Using WebGrabber
Running a .NET application targeted to the .NET 3.5 Framework with only the .NET 4.0 Framework installed on the system results in the error: "System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.ServiceModel, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'"
This error is due to the .NET Framework attempting to locate a system file that does not exist when only the .NET 4.0 Framework is installed and the application is targeted to the .NET 3.5 Framework.

Until this issue is resolved, use one of the following workarounds:
- Install the .NET 3.5 Framework in addition to the WebGrabber installation of the .NET 4.0 Framework.
- Target your application to the .NET 4.0 Framework instead of the .NET 3.5 Framework. For more details, see https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/mr/netfxsetupprerelease/thread/d6d8957e-742a-4cc2-b5c1-d9130ea423d0.
