  • Hi Ahlompys,

    You need to generate XML documentation for the assembly (a file named myassembly.xml) and copy it alongside your .dll where it's referenced by your other projects, please refer to the following steps.

      • Go to the solution explorer of your source code. Right click on the project name and go the properties.
      • go to the Build tab if you are using c# and select the check box Xml documentation file.
      • When you build your source code the Xml file will be generated in the location where your dll is present.
      • while copy your dll to the solution copy the xml file and paste into the bin of your destination solution.

    For more information, please refer to:

    Best regard,
