Multiple Copies of DLLs

Jump to solution

Hi,

We have some dlls that are used by multiple exes in different folders. When these exes are built, the dependent dlls get placed in each folder that they are used. How do I deploy these dlls to the target system without copying the dlls to multiple folders? I tried putting them in the GAC. Seems easy enough and builds the install package without errors. Although when I try to install, I get:

Error 1936. An error occurred during the installation of assembly ‘MyDll,Version=”AA.BB.CC.0”,Culture=’neutral”,FileVersion=”AA.BB.CC.0”,ProcessorArchitecture=”x86”. The assembly is not strongly named or is not signed. I have ‘Sign Files in Package’ set to yes and files are getting signed.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

There is a different "sign" process needed. See here:

Thanks Markus. I would not have thought of that, but it makes sense. I will try that when I get time.
