Referenced dll not found in Manifest? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one solution where I referenced an external dll.I checked the solution Manifest where I should see the referenced external dll and his public key.As I know,it is necessary to have the dll referenced embedded in Manifest otherwise the solution will not compile.Well,I build the solution,I run the solution,I can use the types from the referenced dll but surprise,when I open the exe file from the solution with ildsm.exe and I look into the Manifest,I cannot find any reference to that dll.I only found the mscorelib.dll in the manifest.I was expecting to see something like that:

    .assembly extern Example { .publickeytoken = (B7 7A 5C 56 19 34 E0 89 ) .ver 4:0:0:0 }

    The dll is strong signed.I also put the dll in the GAC folder,I configured the xml to take the last version of the dll and it seems like it is always stuck with the first version,it does not take the last version as per publisher policy assembler.

    I use .NET version 4.7.1 with Visual Studio 2019.

  • The .dll is loaded from another .net application created by me in visual studio.Is stored locally on the same machine I'm running the application.I referenced the .dll using Add Reference.
