Global.asax not checking the GAC


G

Guest

Hi,
I have some code in the global.asax which needs to use a dll in the GAC.
I've included the page directive <%@ Assembly Name="myDll" %> in the
global.asax but I get the following error:

"Could not load file or assembly 'myDll' or one of its dependencies. The
system cannot find the file specified."

When I switch on the fusion assembly logging I can see that the GAC is not
even being searched for the dll.
Does anyone know how I can force the GAC to be checked? (This only seems to
be a problem with global.asax, all other pages can find the dll without a
problem.)

Thanks,

Nick

Hi Nick,

If your assembly has been strong-named and put in GAC, you can always
reference it via its Full qualified assembly name(with Name, Version,
Culture and Public Key Token). e.g.

System.data, version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089

Here is the MSDN reference about Assembly Name:

#Assembly Names
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/k8xx4k69(VS.71).aspx

BTW, for most .net configuration section that require you put type info, if
you do not put Full assembly name, it will treat it like a normal
un-strong-named assembly.

Sincerely,
