You need to find the developers. If they don't use the proper stdold package, https://www.nuget.org/packages/stdole/ Then you have no way to fix the issue for them.

It sounds like your application didn't add the correct assembly 'stdole' to your application reference. Have you checked whether the stdole has been deployed to your bin folder. In addition, I just find that it display the property with copy to local=false,
so maybe you could try this.
In addition, please check whether the publickeytoken is set correctly. Besides, please ensure the application pool identity have permission to access the assembly.

Myself developer - i havn't added this stdole.dll reference this is been added by VS 2015, and dll is present in bin folder, but also its giving same error

Could you load the application in visual studio ? I just notice that if you add the stdole.dll from the reference manager all target the .net 22.214.171.124 CLR. So please ensure you were using a stdole.dll target the .net 4.0.

Visual Studio won't add any reference (except in project template) to your project. You as the developer should be aware of how the reference comes to your project, and from there on you can dig if the correct version is used (I pointed out the NuGet package,
which is almost the only right place today to acquire such assemblies).
Note that this is not a forum with many developers, so you probably should discuss with others at Stack Overflow (https://stackoverflow.com ) or ASP.NET Forums (https://forums.asp.net)

No Bro - i have framework 4.0 installed with VS 2015

So what target framework did you see for the stdole in visual studio? In addition, have you tried to set the property to copy to local?

Target framework is 4.0, and that stdole.dll is not displaying in my project solution explorer, but when i build that dll
appears automatically in bin folder
