When compiling a REST or SOAP SOE template from Visual Studio 2010 on a machine where ArcObjects SDK 10.1 is installed but ArcGIS Server is not installed, the following error is returned:
"Could not load file or assembly 'ESRI.ArcGIS.SOESupport, Version=10.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=8fc3cc631e44ad86' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."
This issue happens because the ESRI.ArcGIS.SOESupport assembly is not registered in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).
This issue can be resolved by manually registering the ESRI.ArcGIS.SOESupport assembly in the GAC using the Global Assembly Cache Tool (Gacutil.exe).
gacutil /i "<ArcGIS DeveloperKit install location>\bin\ESRI.ArcGIS.SOESupport.dll"
