NGEN.EXE Install assembly

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
If I have  a.dll that I locate in directory c:\test\a.dll. I successfully run an ngen install of the dll and can see it clearly in an NGEN display, as well as the root section If I copy the dll to another folder .. example c:\test2\a.dll and load the a.dll from this folder, does the machine use the native image cache from my original ngen install. I am guessing it does not as there is no ngen root referernce to c:\test2\a.dll in my ngen display. I have searched the iternet for this answer and am hoping someone here has an opinion, or better yet, an answer.   Thanks !

How To Install .NET Assembly Into GAC On Windows Server 2008

Hi there.

I have a .NET 2.0 assembly which has been used in many SharePoint projects, running on W2K3 boxes, which I'm having trouble installing on a W2K8 box. Normally, on a W2K3 box, I can get away with dragging the assembly into the C:\Windows\Assembly folder and it will be installed, no problem. However, I see that things are a bit different in W2K8!

If I try to drag the assembly into the GAC, I get an error message indicating that I can't do that. Ok, so I ran Windows Explorer with 'Run As Administrator', but that made no difference.

I looked for .Net Configuration in Control Panel, but that is not there.

As a last resort I did a 'dir gacutil.exe /a/s/p' in a command prompt, but that returned nothing. There is no Visual Studio installed on the W2K8 box, thus I assume that's the reason for no gacutil.exe.

So my questions is, what is the preferred method of installing an assembly into the GAC in W2K8? Has anyone else had the same problem?

"Cannot install this assembly into the global assembly cache The assembly might not be signed" when

In a workflow that I developed earlier I could debug from within Visual Studio 2008. 
It would deploy automatically with no errors when I used DEBUG -> START NEW INSTANCE.

Now when I try to debug it I am getting the error:

Cannot install this assembly into the global assembly cache:  MYDLL.DLL. The assembly might not be signed.

But it is Signed with the same key.snk as before when it debugged with no problems.

How do I fix this?

May I know how to install DLL to Global assembly cache ?

SqlServer - Windows Account to install Application from Gallery


Referring to this tutorial: http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/tutorials/download-and-install-an-asp-net-application

I selected umbraco cms and got this wizard:

I already have Standard Sql Server 2005 on my machine which I wanted to us for above DB and not SqlExpress.

I did not remember "sa" account pwd nor I use explicitly any account to connect to my Sqlserver. I use Windows Authentication account i.e implicit authentication. So I created new account and gave all rights and used it in the above wizard and was able to install the database after some struggle.

My question is: What if I want to use my Windows Account to install the database above? Why the wizard don't have any option to use Windows Integrated Authentication?

Note: I can create the DB with external user I created, just looking specifics for using Windows Authentication for above installation.

VWDE 2010 Won't Install Ajax Control Toolkit on XP Pro


To my displeasure I cannot find VWD2005 which at one time would generate a complete web.config for Ajax so I downloaded and installed VWDE 2010 to a clean install of XP Pro.

I've created a new tab on the toolbar for the controls but after I select the Ajax dll to add the controls to the toolbar it grinds away and then goes poof and closes down the task leaving VWD look as if I had never even created the tab in the toolbar. 


Any advice here?

Error: Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing...TlbImp


Hi!  Can someone tell me how I can troubleshoot the following error: "Encountered multiple versions of the same assembly with GUID...try pre-importing one of these assemblies".

The website developed in VS 2010 (.Net 3.5). This error is only received on my workstation.  Another person developing the site does not experience this issue at all.  Also, not sure if this matters, but on my workstation the 'Assembly Information...' dialog contains no values even though the 'AssemblyInfo.vb' file does specify values for the title, desc, etc.  The GUID being referenced in the error is the main project of the three projects within the solution.

I tried looking through the GAC, but do not see any references to the projects or DLLs in the VS solution and am not sure what else/where to look.

If I delete the copy of the solution on my local machine and pull down a copy from source control (AnkhSVN) the solution will build with no error.  Once I make any changes, such as adding a new aspx file, then the error is received.

I can provide any additional information needed.

The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must



This is frustrating, and I don't know how to solve it.

I have a strange problem. I am adding a LinqDatasource object, and set the context:

        protected void LinqDataSource_ContextCreating(object sender, LinqDataSourceContextEventArgs e)
            e.ObjectInstance = new KaruselaDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

Then I get this error:
The type 'System.Data.Linq.DataContext' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'.


On web.config I already have this:
<add assembly="System.Data.Linq, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"/>

NOTE: The datacontext is in a different project (DLL proect) where I added a refernce to System.Data.Linq.

is there another way adding a refernce to a web project? or only though teh web.config?


MySql.Data assembly problem



I added refernece MySql.Data to my project. My web.config looks like that:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
                <add assembly="MySql.Data, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=C5687FC88969C44D"/>

But when in ServerExplorer I try "Add Connection..." I can't find "MySql Database" in the "Choose Data Source" dialog box?

What the problem can be?

Registering controls of current assembly object reference NOT set error


Hi There,

I have created a simple ASP.net Web Application (2.0) and have added a web user control.

Now in my page I have added this control but I have registered like this,

<%@ Register Assembly="WebApplication1" Namespace="WebApplication1" TagPrefix="Custom" %>

Which means I want to access all the controls in my current Web Application project

Then I have added my user control like this,

<Custom:MyUserControl ID="MyUserControl1" runat="server" PublicProperty="Hello" />

Every thing is fine but when I execute the project, NO control on my user control gets "instantiated" and thus I receive error "Object Reference Not Set"

Note that My Control has,

1) Public property PublicProperty as String

2) 1 Label control

In Load Event Handler I am setting Text property of Label Control to PublicProperty. Here object reference NOT set error occurs (which means Label control is NOT initialized).

I don't want to register my control using Src, TagPrefix etc. Any ideas?

How to install the Css Friendly Control Adapter Source Code


Hi guys really new to ASP.NET I was trying to install the CSS Friendly control adapter but for some reason the instructions on the website seems outdated.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance


CLR Inside Out: Migrating an APTCA Assembly to the .NET Framework 4


The CLR security model in the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 has undergone some substantial changes, including the adoption of "Level2" transparency, similar to the Silverlight security model. Mike Rousos provides an in-depth explanation of how that will likely impact authors of AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers (APTCA) libraries.

CLR Inside Out: The Performance Benefits of NGen.


T ypically, methods in managed executables are just-in-time (JIT) compiled. The machine code generated by the JIT compiler is thrown away once the process running that executable exits; therefore, the method must be recompiled when the application is run again.
