Create An Assembly In A Web Application Project In Visual Studio 2008?

Mar 17, 2011

In a Web Application project in VS08, how do you create an assembly? E.g. you derive a class based on HtmlGenericControl to form your own div, override the ClientId and UniqueId properties, so as not to get screwed up id's on the client-side, and then you want to use/reference this control in an aspx page.

refer to David Lively's answer (c# control names) regarding the same thing. I have tried his solution but I keep getting "could not load assembly file".

Website Project To Reference A Signed Assembly In Visual Studio?

Mar 30, 2011

I'm aware of the following two different types of web projects in Visual Studio 2008:Website projectWeb application projectA web application project can reference a signed assembly as long as the web application's assembly is also signed with the same key. However, this doesn't work with the website project because there is no place to sign an assembly. I think this is because the assembly is compiled dynamically on the server?

Anyway, is it possible to get the website project working with this signed assembly? Or will I have to convert this website project into a web application project?Edit:The following situation has required me to ask for clarification in this matter:I have a class library that is being referenced by several other projects in my solution in Visual Studio. One of the projects is a windows application that will be deployed to specific external users. In order to make sure that the application is using the correct assembly and to also prevent others from using the assembly (I am aware of the limitations with respect to its effectiveness), all assemblies have been signed and all the classes in the library are declared as Friend (internal).

The website project doesn't seem to have a way for me to sign its assembly and I get the following message when attempting to use anything from the library: "CLASS is not assessable in this context because it is 'Friend'", which is to be expected.The following attributes are inside the AssemblyInfo.vb file in my class library project:

<Assembly: InternalsVisibleTo("OtherProject1, PublicKey=AAA...")>
<Assembly: InternalsVisibleTo("OtherProject2, PublicKey=AAA...")>

My Conclusion:Looks like the cleanest way to do this would be to convert the website into a web application but this would require a bit of time to do since our site is pretty fleshed out already and as pointed out in other discussions, can be quite a pain to do. Going forward, I think creating a web application in the first place may have been a better idea and much more flexible for future development.

Web Forms :: Referring An Assembly In Project / Without Adding Assembly Reference, It Still Accepting And Running Code?

Jul 5, 2010

Before using any class in your website project/page we have to add it's assembly reference to our project. Right?

Now, when I am using SmtpClient class from System.Net assembly after adding the System.Net.Mail namespace in namespace node of application's web.config file but without adding assembly reference to the project, it still accepting and running the code. Why?

I enquired the machine's web.config file located at C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727CONFIG but didnt find assembly reference for System.Net there also.

So bit confused how it is working and where the assembly reference has been added and how?

Recompile The Assembly To Use The New Mono Assembly Versions The Assembly Is Closed Source?

Feb 18, 2010

I have recently discovered that I am affected by this bug

Well,at they say the work around is to create a global policy assembly and redirect the assemblies that way since it is not read from the web.config.

How do you actually do what they describe there? There is a huge documentation gap in that area with Mono.Also,I can't just recompile the assembly to use the new Mono assembly versions because the assembly is closed source.(but it does work with Mono.)

Create Shared Assembly And Use That Assembly In Web Application?

Jun 3, 2010

I just want to create Shared Assembly and use that assembly in our application.I am using VS 2005.

Step 1

I am trying to build a dll.

Create class library project <TestDllHell>.

Under that project add CalculationArea.cs file.


Then TestDllHell.dll add into GAC successfully.

Now I want to use it in my Website project so did the following steps but unable to view that dll in .Net Reference List Box.

•I go for Run regedit to edit the Windows Registry.

•Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoft.NETFrameworkAssemblyFolders key.

•Right click on the AssemblyFolders key, then select New > Key. Enter the name of your assembly (without the .dll extension).

•Double click on the key's (Default) value. The Edit String dialog will appear. Enter the full path of the folder where your assembly resides. Note that all assemblies in that folder will appear in the Visual Studio list.

•IMPORTANT! You must exit and restart Visual Studio to see your assembly in the Add Reference dialog.

My question is that

How can I get that dll in my add reference assembly List .Net section?

And if I modify that dll(TestDllHell.dll) then again register in GAC then version will be different,So how can I told my client application that which dll you choose?

Visual Studio Assembly References?

Sep 5, 2010

Is there anyway to localise an external assembly reference? Here's my situation:I am working on Project A and it contains assembly references from Project B. Now when I release this Project to my client I don't want to have to include the whole of Project B with it. Is there anyway to force it to copy the dll's from Project B onto Project A and use those references? I can do this manually by copying all dll's to local project and re-referencing but just wanted to know if there is an easier way.

Visual Studio :: How To Compil A Website That Uses An X64 Assembly

Aug 30, 2010

I am trying to compile a website in Visual Studio 2008 on a 64-bit platform. The website needs to run as a native 64-bit application, and also references an x64 assembly. Whenever I try to build the website in visual studio, I get a bad image format exception referring to the x64 assembly.As per my understanding, visual studio compilation is running as a 32 bit process causing this problem. Also, for websites the only build platform available for selection in visual studio is '.Net'. So I cannot select that the website should be built for x64 execution.

Pages With 64 Bit Assembly In Visual Studio 2010?

Nov 3, 2010

I'm using a 64bit dll ( in an MVC app in VS 2010. The application runs and debugs fine, but all the aspx and ascx pages show errors when editing in Visual Studio 2010 and intellisense doesn't work. This is a VS2010 regression bug. Does anyone have a work around? (OR)Does anyone know of a free, reliable, production ready embeddable database that doesn't cause a 32/64 bit problem?More DetailsApparently this worked in Visual Studio 2008 and this has been is a known regression bug in Visual Studio 2010 for several months. I don't want to revert to VS 2008 and I don't want to debug in 32 bit mode.

I have web application that needs to debug and deploy as a 64 bit mode because it uses uses some unmanaged 64 bit dll's like Also, I prefer debugging in 64 bit mode because it allows us to test some high memory use cases. After a lot of fiddling, will deploy and run just fine. However all the aspx and ascx pages show errors and intellisense doesn't work when editing them in Visual Studio 2010. Apparently this worked in Visual Studio 2008 and this has been is a known problem in Visual Studio 2010 for months. I don't want to revert to VS 2008. There was a work around posted on SO here but it didn't work in my tests, limits debugging to 32bit mode, and also feels a bit hacky (I think it only works for VS Express style websites). Has anyone made this work in a web application or have a better work around?For those who are interested Visual Studio 2010 has two other problems with 64bit dlls that I have managed to work around.

Problem 1 - Cassini: Cassini can only debug in 32 bit modeSolution 1 - CassiniDev or Localhost: Debug using localhost or compile CassiniDev (an opensoure variant of cassini) in 64bit mode. I like the zero config simplicity of debugging a new web app with cassini so I used CassiniDev. You just stick the dlls in C:Program Files (x86)Common Filesmicrosoft sharedDevServer10.0 and it works (I recommended making a backup of the Cassini version you will be over writing).Problem 2 - MSTest: By default unit tests run with MSTest fail to load 64bit dlls.Solution 2 - AnyCPU & 64bit host process Instructions here, set local.testsettings to AnyCPU & 64bit host processI'm starting to think the whole setup is too little hacky and I'm on the verge of giving up and restructuring my application to not use a 64bit dll. I'm also really disappointed that Visual Studio 2010 caused all these problems. Can somebody make MS fix the regression bug they created?

Visual Studio - Website Still Looking For Old Name Of Renamed Referenced Assembly?

Aug 4, 2010

I have a solution with a website and a class library. I have renamed the class library project from Insight_WebControls to Insight.WebControls. I have also renamed the assembly it produces in its properties.

I have removed from the website's references the old class library and added the new.

However, when I try to build the website, I get the error 'Could not load file or assembly 'Insight_WebControls' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.' There is a dll called 'Insight.WebControls' in the bin folder. Clearly some part of the website is still looking for the old filename. Can anyone tell me how to point it to Insight.WebControls.dll instead?

Visual Studio :: Assembly Entries In Web.Config Were Adding Automatically And Now They Are Not?

Sep 2, 2010

A while ago when i started using VS 2005, i found that some assembly entries were automatically added to from web.config

and i was getting annoying errors. later i found i have added unneccessary references in my application. And its a feature that assembly reference are automatically added to assembly tag in Web.config, So dev don't have to worry about it.

Recently i used Interop.OWC11.dll in my application. And ^&*# got the annoying

"CS0234: The type or namespace name 'Office' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft' (are you missing an assembly reference?)"

error again.. Assembly entry was not added automatically. I checked same for existing references in my application, for them to automatic entries is not happening.... ? :(

I have to write is down in Web.config manually... I don't understand why?....

Visual Studio :: Intellisense Not Working For Assembly Registered In Global Web.config?

Nov 3, 2010

I made a custom server control library that all of our websites will be using. I have registered the dll in the global web.config of our production and development servers, and everything runs fine in the browser. The only problem I have is Visual Studio/Intellisense not recognizing my control. I get the error message "Unknown server tag...", which in turn throws other validation warnings. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio to include dll's registered in this location? Our sites are .net 4.0 and below is an excerpt from the web.config located in %SystemDrive%WindowsMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv4.0.30319Config on the servers.

<add assembly="[assembly info]" tagPrefix="irnrControls" namespace="IRNR.Controls"/>

It's not that big of a deal right now as I only have one control in the dll, but I would like to fix this before I add more controls.

Edit: I can't debug the site and it fails when I try to build it. The Output window displays "Unknown server tag".

Visual Studio :: Could Not Load File Or Assembly 'PdfSharp, Version=1.2.1269.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f94615aa0424f9eb' Or One Of Its Dependencies

Jul 19, 2010

I've been using a particular version of a PDF library (PdfSharp), with the dll file in the bin directory (bin/PdfSharp.dll). I use this to prepare, combine, split, and otherwise manipulate PDF files, both those that come from outside my app and those I generate using ReportViewer.

Today I saw there was a new version of the library and naively dropped the new .dll into the bin folder, replacing the old one (I rarely have need to mess with the 2 or 3 dlls in my bin folder and it's been 2 years since I set them up so I wasn't really sure how to proceed and didn't take the time to think too much about it). The PDF generation no longer worked, so I deleted the newer .dll and replaced it with the older one (I have copies in backups, the production server, etc).

Now, although I've confirmed that the dll in the bin folder is the older version (file Properties show correct older version number, file size is older file size, etc), and although the application works correctly, including those parts that call on the library, I can no longer access the data sources for my RDLC files -- when I open an RDLC file in the editor and choose Report->Data Sources, I get this error:

Could not load file or assembly 'PdfSharp, Version=1.2.1269.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f94615aa0424f9eb' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

I am mystified: I don't understand the connection between a report's data source and this library; I know that the correct version (1.2.1269.0) is in binPdfSharp.dll; and I can find no references to any version of PdfSharp in any file in my application, other than the code that actually calls it (ie, there are no references to it in web.config or the .rdlc files or the dataset .xsd files). I've also been through the registry and find no references to the new version. I've tried deleting the dll and re-adding it using "Add Reference...", and I've tried "Update Reference", all to no avail.
