type initializer in RedGate.Compression.ZLib.ZLibUtil

When one of our clients attempts to run a SQLPackager update package from the command line, this error is being generated:

The type initializer for 'RedGate.Compression.ZLib.ZLibUtil' threw an exception

Has anyone seen this before, and where should we start looking for a solution?

Thanks for your post. This isn't a common error as far as I can tell.

Out of interest, does this just affect one user/machine? i.e. the same package runs fine elsewhere? If so, it may be a problem such as a missing/corrupt .NET Framework. Most of our tools require .NET 3.5 SP1, can you ensure that's installed on the relevant machine (same goes for .NET 2.0)?
