DLL assembly manifest file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am writing an application that loads components dynamically from a DLL by creating a new AppDomain and calling CreateInstanceAndUnwrap().  One component that my application is attempting to load has a dependency on a COM component (HTML Tidy) that I want to run side-by-side with my DLL.  Is it possible to specify a manifest file for my DLL to define this dependency?  I have attempted to create a manifest both as an embedded resource and stand-alone file (MyLibrary.dll.manifest), but the runtime does not seem to find it.  The only way I have gotten the component to load was to link statically to my DLL and define the dependency in my exe's manifest file.

  • generally, for COM component, you need to register it first. And then you don't need the manifest.

    Call me ghost for short, Thanks
    To get the better answer, it should be a better question.

  • I also don't understand the question. COM components are not linked to by dependent code.
