Module loading question RRS feed

  • Question

  • My code makes no reference to System.Data, yet this module is being loaded when my application launches.  How can I tell what is causing this module to load?

  • System.Data is a common assembly.  Probably something that uses DataSet internally or interoperates with DataSet or database functionality.

    Most likely, you really should not be worrying about this.  99% of the .NET apps out there need to load System.Data because they deal with databases.  The overhead really should not be so great that it affects you in any way.
