MAF - Shared assemblies

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF

Is there a way to share an assembly between an addin and host application without having to register that assembly in the GAC(you need admin permissions for that and that just brings a whole new set of unneeded problems to the client).

Also...i read that microsoft was actually doing something on MAF + MEF integration or...evolution and i'm wondering if there is still any development on making MEF support loading and unloading like MAF does...and if so when exactly is something comming out.

Public Shared function doubt????

I am using VB.net/ASP.NET and SQL Server 2000 for a web application.

For populating the dropdowns, I wrote a Public Shared function LoadDDL(), in which I pass the dataset and dropdown name to set.

I have my doubts that this function will produce unexpected results for concurrent users. And will mix the results among sessions because it is a Shared function.

I am confused here. Is it the right way to go?

Please advice. Thanks in advance.

Rotor: Shared Source CLI Provides Source Code for a FreeBSD Implementation of .NET


With over 9,000 files, and including some 1300 public classes to pore through, the Shared Source CLI can teach you quite a bit about the internal workings of the CLR. But the sheer amount of source code included can make just starting your exploration a monumental task. This article discusses some of the things you can learn from the source code facsimile of the CLR, like how JIT compilation works. It will also help you understand how to control execution along with debugging and loading classes. A walk through the steps involved in setting up the runtime will let you become familiar with the process.

Mixed Mode application suddenly stops loading assemblies

I have a mixed modes application that will occasionally stop executing managed code assemblies after a Windows update. This has been occurring for over a month now so I have not been able to identify any particular update as the problem. We see the problem predominately on XPSP3 but have also seen several times on Vista and once or twice on 7. On a machine that stops working the Fusion log will show a file not found error on the last assembly loaded. LOG: This bind starts in default load context. LOG: No application configuration file found. LOG: Using machine configuration file from c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\config\machine.config. LOG: Post-policy reference: AProvider.Data.SqlClient.resources, Version=, Culture=en, PublicKeyToken=c84cd5c63851e072 LOG: The same bind was seen before, and was failed with hr = 0x80070002. ERR: Unrecoverable error occurred during pre-download check (hr = 0x80070002). If I delete this assembly, the application will run although not correctly since the data layer has been removed but it does execute as expected instead of hanging. If we run Procmon and watch the probes the correct folders are searched and the images show as loading. But execution fails, either the application hangs or exits. If we move the assemblies to a 'special' folder such as Program Files or Documents, regasm the p

Mixed Mode assemblies

Does anyone have a good tutorial on how to make the compiler package a mixed-mode assembly?  Specifically:I have a piece of non-trivial C code maintained externally.  I would like to compile that and distribute it with a managed wrapper in a single assembly.  Im looking at the build files for a project which does something similar but right now im at a loss as to how to set this up. 

WCF Multiple Custom Assemblies in IIS7

Hi, I have a WCF service library that references a few sub-assemblies.  As an example, I have a service layer assembly and a business layer assembly.  When I attempt to deploy into an IIS 7 host, I keep getting the error: assembly 'business layer' could not be loaded.  Both the assemblies are in the bin directory and neither are in the GAC.  I'm trying to avoid introducing them there.  Is there somewhere in IIS or the web.config that I could update to tell it where to load the sub-assemblies? Please note that as a test, when I took out the reference to the business layer, the service compiled and was consumed by a test client successfully. Thanks, Kyle

Shared dataset in SSRS 2008 R2 running on SSAS 2005

I am trying to create a report in SSRS 2008 R2 using SSAS 2005 as a datasource. My dataset has a date parameter. When I create an embedded dataset in my report everything works fine, but when I create a shared dataset with the exact same mdx query, I get the following error: An error occurred during local report processing. The definition of the report 'xxxx' is invalid. The Value expression for the report parameter 'DateCalendarHierarchy' contains an error: [BC30034] Bracketed identifier is missing closing ']'. Does anybody have any ideas? Is this a bug? Thanks, Louis
