SSAS Tabular Deployment Fails: Newtonsoft.Json Missing

Alex Whittles walks us through an error deploying a SQL Server Analysis Services tabular model:

Deploying an Analysis Services Tabular model to SSAS Azure using the Analysis Services Deployment Wizard. Both Visual Studio 2017 & SQL Server 2017 installed on the client.

Try and click on the ellipses to change the data source connection string or impersonation information results in a Newtonsoft.json error:

“Could not load file or assembly ‘Newtonsoft.Json, Version 6.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, ……”

As I like to joke, every single .NET project in existence includes Newtonsoft.Json.  As Alex shows, sometimes they don’t reference the right version.
