Mixing Assembly Runtime Versions Question

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I'm building an application targeted at the .NET Framework 4 and want to use the Logging Application Block and notice that the 5.0.414.0 version installed by the MSI is targeted at the 2.0.50727 runtime.  If this 2.0 version of the Logging Application Block is used, are there any performance problems or other issues which would suggest that I install the Logging Application Block source code and compile it targeted at .NET Framework 4 and use that DLL??

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.

clr assembly in sql server - working directory? and exception question

Hello, I have a small assembly in sql server 2008... it's pretty simple, but in the very rare circumstance that it may throw an exception I am catching it and writting to a log file. something like: using (StreamWriter sr = new StreamWriter(@".\ErrorLog.txt", true)) { sr.WriteLine("{0:G} ===> {1}", DateTime.Now, ex.Message); } I believe that should write the file to the working directory... 1. what would the working directory be for sql server 2008? the binn directory? 2. what would happen if a clr assembly added to sql server throws an exception that is not handled by your clr code?

Mixed mode assembly is built against version 'v2.0.50727' of the runtime and cannot be loaded in t

First, yes I've read every article I can find including this one: http://msmvps.com/blogs/rfennell/archive/2010/03/27/mixed-mode-assembly-is-built-against-version-v2-0-50727-error-using-net-4-development-web-server.aspx Of course it's for web server stuff, but I found this in my config file and added it. However, my problem now is that if I build in release mode I get a hard error in the error list telling me the same thing, even though it runs fine in debug and has the information in my app.config file. The really anoying part is that the error doesn't tell you WHICH assembly is the offending one. Anyone have any ideas?

How can i change the assembly's attributes at runtime?

i know how to get the assembly's attributes at runtime, it's like this: Assembly asm = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly(); string asmDesc = ((AssemblyDescriptionAttribute)asm.GetCustomAttributes(typeof( AssemblyDescriptionAttribute ), false )[0]).Description; but how to set it at runtime?? I just found AssemblyBuilder.SetCustomAttribute(),  but can AssemblyBuilder be used in current asm or a assigned asm? thx~

General Setup Question regarding Ssytem.XML assembly

Hello,I have a solution running perfectly well on one machine (or actually quite a few machines).  All the code is in source safe and I am trying to set up a new machine with the solution but keep getting the following build errors:'XName' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XNamespace' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XElement'is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb 'XAttribute' is ambiguous in the namespace 'System.Xml.Linq'. InternalXmlHelper.vb and so on...The main difference that I noticed was that on the machines where the application builds, in the property page of the project whgere the build erros are occurring I check the reference list and I see a reference to the System.XML assembly (GAC,  However in the machine with the build errors, even when I try to add a reference to the System.XML assembly I get no error messages, but afterr adding the assembly does NOT appear in the reference list.In addition I have verified that I am able to create a new web application without any build or runtime errors on the machine experiencing these issues.Any feedback would be greatly appreicated.Thanks.

Assembly versioning best practice question wrt alpha, beta, etc

We'd like to employ some best practices with respect to versioning in our assemblies.  Since I'm coming from a Java+Maven+OSGi background, I'll share its way of doing versioning. Versioning in Java is arbitrary; there are no platform-dictated schemes.  However, for quite some time now, versions have the typical form major.minor.revision[.qualifier] where major & minor are pretty self-explanatory, revision is used to indicate very minor updates like bug fixes/hot fixes, etc, and qualifier is used at the publisher's convenience.  Almost always, the major, minor & revision elements are numeric values, but they don't have to be.  Ordering is as you might expect:  major versions are the most signficant element and are compared by the string's order unless their all numeric, in which case they're compared numerically, then minor, then revision, then qualifier, if present.  So, to give an example of the versioning scheme that a newly created library might go through, consider the following versions with descriptions: 1.0.0.A1 -- alpha 1 1.0.0.A2 -- alpha 2 1.0.0.B1 -- beta 1 1.0.0.M1 -- milestone 1 1.0.0.M2 -- milestone 2 1.0.0.RC1 -- release candidate 1 1.0.0.RC2 -- release candidate 2 1.0.0.RELEASE -- golden release to manufacturing, aka "official" release Notice that the version string for the version considered gol

Replacing a text question in a Survey using JavaScript at runtime (document.body.innerHTML.replace)

Hi, I want to replace some of the text in a SharePoint Survey at runtime.  The idea behind that is to add a "header" or "title" to questions that are related together.  For example, let's say I have 2 related questions, a page separator, and 2 more related questions: (yes/no type of questions): Q1.  Are you between 20 and 40? Q2.  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Q3.  J2EE Q4.  C/C++ The result on the final Survey should look like this: Tell us about you. Are you between 20 and 40?  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Indicate what programming languages you know: J2EE C/C++ Simply, I tried to use the document.body.innerHTML.replace() in order to replace:  - Q1 with: <h2>Tell us about you.</h2>  - Q2 with ''  - Q3 with: <h2>Indicate what programming languages you know:</h2>  - Q4 with: '' Using the technique below, I added the following code in SharePoint Designer in NewForm.aspx: <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderTitleAreaClass" runat="server"> <script id="onetidPageTitleAreaFrameScript"> document.getElementById("onetidPageTitleAreaFrame").className="ms-areaseparator"; document.body.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML.replace(/Q1/g,'

Question regarding having multiple versions of the .net framework


Hi guys,

Sorry if this sounds silly, but it's been getting to me for quite a while now.  I've been having some issues installing both .net framework 3.5 and 4.0 on my computer since I have certain software that either requires one or the other to run.  I've tried over and over again to install framework version 3.5 from your web site, but each time, the result is the same.  I always get the error that I mustconfigure the framework from the control panel.  Yet I see nothing about that in the control panel.  Maybe it would help you to know that I had first found .net framework through IIS when I went to put that in there, and so I've been trying to install it from there.  Every other framework version works fine except for version 3.5.  I unfortunately cannot provide any logs since my computer is currently with the Gordon college techs due to another issue, but any help on this would be appreciated.  Thanks. 



Uploading assembly at runtime through Windows Application


I am desigining a windows form wherein I allow the user to upload a particular assembly file. The assembly file can be present at any location on the user's hard drive. I want to now load this assembly and read the classes present in this assembly. I am doing this using Reflection, however I am not unable to unload the assembly which is once loaded  through reflection. I have tried using AppDomains, but I am unable to load the assembly through AppDomain. Whenever I try to load my assembly from the appDomain I get a error message "The specified assembly file or one of its dependencies does not exist". I have set the ApplicationBase path of the AppDomain to the location where the assembly file is being uploaded from. However I am still not able to load the assembly from the AppDomain.

Can anyone please let me know in case I am missing something. Any help on this will be highly appreciated.




How to bind to different versions of an assembly?


Hello everyone,

I have an app that binds to an assembly in GAC. The assembly can have two versions (say 9 and 10 for simplicity) (there will be more in future) and the app can work with either of the two versions, it doesn't care. However, because the app is bound to version 9 and deployed on a machine with version 10 on it, the app fails to load the assembly with version 9 and breaks.

The app may be deployed on any workstation, (version 9 or 10) we don't know. Assembly redirect tag in application configuration wouldn't work because we don't know what version is in GAC. Does anyone know how to address this situation?


this assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded



He estado buscando mucho y ya no se que hacer con este error. Tengo reporting services 2008, .net framework 4 y trabajo con report builder 2.

Todos los reportes los puedo publicar correctamente en el report server, pero cuando voy a publicar el que tiene referencia a una dll propia obtengo este error: this assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded (rsErrorLoadingCodeModule).

Ya reinstale el framework 4, la dll ya se encuentra en la carpeta bin de report server y ya esta registrada usando la herramienta gacutil.exe.

Mi propia dll esta hecha bajo .net framework4.

Este montaje lo tengo en un servidor y funciona correctamente, pero el problema se me presenta a subir esto es un servidor propio de un cliente.

Agradezco la colabroración que me puedan prestar.

PD. me disculpan si lo publique en el sitio que no era... pero no supe a que otra categoría asociarlo.

Question about books and versions. Please help.

I recently decided to get back into programming and want to learn either c# or c++. However, i have lots of books on them and on .NET but they are outdated mainly 2005, some maybe as early as 2003. What I need to know is: can i just start there and learn about the new features of the past few years or are these books outdated and useless to me now? It seems to me that the basics of the languages would remain the same but that the .NET library would be updated and that i could just look up new changes? Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.
