I got the following error while running the application. This json problem is due to the newtonsoft json dll could not be added to the project reference.
To begin install newtonsoft json 4.5 in the project by running the following command in the nuget package manager console and enter.
PM> Install-Package Newtonsoft.Json -Version 4.5.11
The newtonsoft json dll will automatically get downloaded and installed in the project and referenced in the bin folder.
