HowTo find a specific version of an assembly in the GAC?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
 

I need to find a way of determining if a certain assembly version is present in the GAC and so far the only way I've found of doing this is by running gacutil /l AssemblyName and then parsing the output of that and check the 'Version' values.

Does anyone have a better solution?

How to reference specific version of a GAC assembly

  

Hi,

I've got an VS 2005 C# application that references 3 assemblies in the GAC. These 3 assemblies are part of a framework we built and are versioned 1.0.0.0. We're now rebuilding the VS 2005 application. Part of that involved some upgrades to the framework who's assemblies are in the GAC. I rebuilt the framework assemblies with the changes using version 1.0.1.0 and put those in the GAC on my development machine. So now I have both version 1.0.0.0 and version 1.0.1.0 in the GAC. When I try to run the VS 2005 project from the debugger, I get a runtime error complaining that one of my classes is violating a generic constraint of one of the framework's generic collection types. My type is correct so this was a version issue. I changed my references to my framework assemblies to Specific Version = true and verified they're referencing 1.0.0.0 but it still gets the error. If I remove the 1.0.1.0 assemblies from the GAC, it works again.

Can I have both in the GAC and reference the specific versions?


trying to use custom assembly with script task in SSIS 2008 - can't find correct version of GACUtil

  

I am trying to use a custom assembly (compiled with VS 2005 framework 2.0) with SSIS 2008.  I understand that I need to put this Assembly in the GAC.  I initially attempted to do this using the GACUtil, but I apparently only have version 1.1 of GACUtil intalled on my development PC.  Shouldn't version 2.0 have been installed as part of VS 2005? 

So I then tried simply copying the dll into the GAC folder using windows explorer.  Well, the dll is now visibly in the GAC folder, but I cannot see it from either VS 2005 or BIDS 2008.  Does that mean I do need to use GACUtil 2.0 or higher to install the DLL into the GAC?  If so, is there any place on the Web that I can download it?

Help Troubleshoot "Could not find Type in assembly"

  
I am attempting to create a CLR Procedure.  I was able to create the assembly, but I am unable to create a procedure on the assembly.  This is the error I receive: Msg 6505, Level 16, State 1, Procedure DINEServiceProc, Line 2 Could not find Type 'DINEServiceProc' in assembly 'DINEService' Here is the VB code to create the class: <code> Imports System Imports System.Data Imports System.Data.Sql Imports System.Data.SqlClient Imports System.Data.SqlTypes Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Server Partial Public Class DINEServiceProc <Microsoft.SqlServer.Server.SqlProcedure()> _ Public Shared Sub ServiceProc(ByVal iMsg As String, ByVal iMsgType As String) Dim conn As SqlConnection 'Create an in-process connection to the instance of SQL Server conn = New SqlConnection("Context Connection=True") Dim DINEService As New DINEService Try conn.Open() DINEService.ProcessStartRequest(iMsg, iMsgType) Catch sqe As SqlException 'Console.WriteLine(sqe.Message) Return Finally conn.Close() End Try End Sub End Class </code> And here is the code to create the assembly and the procedure: <code> USE [ServiceBrokerTest] GO /****** Object: SqlAssembly [DINEService] Script Date: 01/03/2006 10:38:00 ******/ CREATE ASSEMBLY [DINEServiceProc] AUTHORIZATION [dbo] FROM 'D:\EHIT\ServiceBroker\DINEService\DINEService\bin\Debug\DINEService.dll' WITH PERMISSION_SET = SAFE

HOWTO add a C#.NET library to SQL Server as an assembly that uses such references as system.web.

  
HOWTO add a C#.NET library to SQL Server as an assembly that uses such references as system.web. I have a C# library (dll) I want to add to SQL Server via "CREATE ASSEMBLY", but the DLL uses these references: Microsoft.VisualBasic System System.Core System.Data System.Data.DataSetExtensions System.Drawing System.Management System.Web System.Web.Extensions System.Web.Mobile System.Web.Services System.Xml System.Xml.Linq And just to be clear, the DLL is a .NET 3.5 app, with the SQL Server being SQL Server 2008. Right off the bat, the "CREATE ASSEMBLY" call fails due to System.Web, which strangely, is 2.0.0.0. The CREATE ASSEMBLE says this error: Msg 10301, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Assembly 'MyLibrary' references assembly 'system.web, version=2.0.0.0, culture=neutral, publickeytoken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a.', which is not present in the current database. SQL Server attempted to locate and automatically load the referenced assembly from the same location where referring assembly came from, but that operation has failed (reason: 2(The system cannot find the file specified.)). Please load the referenced assembly into the current database and retry your request. I have tried to use VS 2010, to create a SQL Server DB project, and it point blank does not let one add references to things like System.Web. When trying to use "Add Ref", VS 2010 literally lo

"Mixed mode assembly is built against version 'v2.0.50727'.... " issue and use custom config file

  
Hi, My Winform applilcation has used Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common namespace(assembly :Microsoft.Sqlserver.smo.dll/Microsoft.Sqlserver.ConnectionInfo.dll) and developed in .NET 4.0. Problem:Application is throw an exception when it tries to use above assembly reference methods. Full error text is shown below, "Mixed mode assembly is built against version 'v2.0.50727' of the runtime and cannot be loaded in the 4.0 runtime without additional configuration information.

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo, Version=9.0.242.0......

  
Hello to everyone. I have a .exe which uses the Server Management Objects(SMO) When I try it on my pc it runs without any problem. But on another pc it gives this error: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo, Version=9.0.242.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. I'm using SQL Server 2000 and for the application: Visual Studio 2005. Any idea would be very useful!! Thanks in advance!!

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 to find specific nested object type in Gridview

  
Dears, I have a gridview with a nested placeholder in each rows. I nested some checkboxes in each placeholders in each rows dynamically, so their ServerIDs are not the same (I dont want to use nested gridview). at the end in a button event I want to count checked checkboxes in gridview while I can not use findcontrol() method in each rows to find checkboxes due to their different ServerIDs. How can I do this?

SPPersistedObject and assembly version dependency

  
Hi All, I have implemented some SharePoint solution that uses SPPersistedObject-s, this solution has some DLL files which are versioned. So the problem is that when the DLL version changes, I can't see those object that were written with an old DLL version anymore, SPPersistedObject objects are the same(structure, etc ...) and they are still there, because if I add an old version back this objects are still there and I'm able to read it. Any suggestions, how this can "limitation" can be avoided? Any workaround? Any proper solution?   Best Regards and  Thank You, Mitja
