#SharePoint2010: Error 7043 Load control template file /_controltemplates/TaxonomyPicker.ascx failed

While monitoring Event log of my SharePoint 2010 server, i have found this error in logs:

Load control template file /_controltemplates/TaxonomyPicker.ascx failed: Could not load type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls.TaxonomyPicker' from assembly 'Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c'.

Although i cannot find any particular reason for this error, neither it will affect any of your services, but it would be better if you can find a solution and resolve it, so that it wont bother you while looking to your event log :)

Eventually i have found cause to this error from Microsoft support site as:
"The source of the problem looks like a stale control template in the control templates folder while the control itself has been removed from the code base."

To get rid of this error, follow the simple steps:
  1. Navigate to /14/TEMPLATE/ControlTemplates/TaxonomyPicker.ascx user control
  2. Open the user control in a text editor and locate the first line
  3. Find the character string , and replace with a comma ‘,’ (without quotes).
  4. Save the user control.

Hope this helps.
