Referencing external .NET assemblies RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does referencing external .NET assemblies in script components or script tasks require the assemblies to be on the GAC? Or is there some way to provide a discovery path?

  • As far as I could test at development time, the assembly doesn't need to be on the GAC but it needs to be on Binn folder of SQL Server DTS (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn, in my case).

    I am signing the assembly, nevertheless, in order for the script tasks to have the right reference, and referencing the assembly copied to the Binn folder.
