    You can try to merge two dll's into one
    You also use the following command to merge two dll's into one.

    Aspnet_merge C:\DLLFolder -o MyApp.dll

    Hai Jeevan,
    This is called as Ambiguous reference error. Sometimes this kind of error comes when there is an old assembly exists somewhere in the cache.
    So you need to remove the old assembly cache. Go to the below path:

    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\vx.x.xxxx\Temporary ASP.NET Files
    and then delete all the files in the folder.
    Hope it will be helpful to you.

    Just go to below path and try to delete all folders from that path, after that restart IIS, it will resolve the issue
    go to
    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files'
    Here search for folder with the same name as your virtual directory and then delete it
