TaxonomyPicker Error in Eventlog SharePoint 2010

You might have noticed the following error logged into the EventLog.

“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’.”

Open the TaxonomyPicker.ascx in the 12 hive control templates path:

Replace “&#44” with double quote

This issue still exists after installing my October 2010 Cummulative Updates.
