I am trying to create an xcopy installable utility that leverages some of the Sho libraries. I find that when I run my program on a machine that has Sho properly installed it works fine but when I xcopy the Sho dll's along with my program to a different
machine it repeatedly fails with this exception. My deployment scenario precludes anything but xcopy install so this is something of a blocker. Any advice would be appreciated:
"Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentException: The array could not be created: The type initializer for 'ShoNS.Array.TypeToImplMapDense' threw an exception.
at ShoNS.Array.ArrayExceptionHelper.ThrowInnerCreateException(Exception e)
at ShoNS.Array.ArrayBase`1..ctor(Int32 size0, Int32 size1)
at ShoNS.Array.IntArray..ctor(Int32 size0, Int32 size1)"
From the "Code Setup" section from the above link:
Because the ShoArray classes contain both managed and unmanaged code to achieve maximal computation speed, the array libraries depend on some satellite DLLs. In order for the managed libraries to resolve these references, you'll have to do
one of the following:
[preferred method] Set the environment variable SHODIR to the
parent of Sho's bin directory. Alternatively, you can set the variable SHOBINDIR to the bin directory directly. For instance, if you copied the bin directory from the Sho install to C:\libraries\Sho\bin,
you should point SHODIR to C:\libraries\Sho. Note that you can set the variable programatically (ideally as soon as the app starts) via
