Add-in framework and use of a common library RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am building some add-ins for use in a WPF application. My add-in uses a common library of behavior that I am constructing ... all parts of the pipeline reference this library (configured to not make local copies of the lib) in method signatures. I have a problem using the common library because of what appears to be some kind of library loading issue. As the pipeline is being formed, I get a message that says:

    "Could not rebuild pipeline:
    No usable HostAdapter parts could be found in assembly "C:\Users\Thomas B Winans
    \Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\AddInConsoleTest\AddInConsoleTest\App\Hos
    No usable Contract parts could be found in assembly "C:\Users\Thomas B Winans\Do
    cuments\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\AddInConsoleTest\AddInConsoleTest\App\Contra
    No usable AddInAdapter parts could be found in assembly "C:\Users\Thomas B Winan
    s\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\AddInConsoleTest\AddInConsoleTest\App\Ad

    Now this add-in was successfully loaded and functionality invoked prior to introducing a common class library.

    Can anyone offer some insight into how a common library should be used? Must it be gac'ed for example?
