While working with Visual Studio 2008, I would constantly get exceptions thrown at me while working with any ASP.NET AJAX page. I also had no Intellisense when working with JavaScript which was a pain. I found an issue to the problem from Josh Berke on his blog here. It seems that there is a conflict with using a fingerprint reader while you are working with AJAX (they are somewhat related, aren't they?). You have to open up your processes (ALT + CTRL + DEL) and kill DPAgent.exe. Doing this immediately got everything working ... thanks Josh for the tip!

Another problem with Digital Persona - DpAgent.exe ---

A few days ago I received a notification message (Vista) informing me of a new version of Digital Persona which I could buy as an upgrade to the fingerprint scanner in my notebook (v3.x to v4.x). I declined the offer and accepted their request that I be notified of future updates. Immediately after that, my CPU usage began running at about 50%, so much so that the fan ran continuously. Checking Task Manager showed that the DpAgent.exe was the only other task taking up CPU. Killing the task stopped it the excessive CPU usage, but it began again on the next bootup.

To solve this, go to your application Digital Persona, Properties, Automatic Updates, and uncheck the box labeled "Check for updates every N days." There is clearly a problem in their software that Digital Persona needs to fix and Digital Persona should not be changing my property settings without clearly stating that. Digital Persona's web site will not accept support for OEM pcs, like HP and Dell. I find using the reader a great advantage; however, their update and notification processes are far from helpful.

This is the 2nd time I've had issues with Digital Persona software. Last time required eliminating whatever was DP task was running on the taskbar and now I need to go after the DPAgent.exe file. A lot of work for "free" software. Thanks for the help.

Thank You!
Killing that DPAgent process solved the TypeLibBuilder.exe issue. My config is: Vista Business 64 bits with Visual Studio 2008 on HP dv9780 notebook.

Hi
I am also facing the same error and that too very frequently.
But couldn't find any solution till now.
Also there is not any DpAgent.exe process running in the Processes list in Taskman.
