Dotfuscator linking problem


F

Fred

Is there is a better newsgroup for this question?

I am having a problem linking assemblies into one using Dotfuscator
Pro 4.0.

The problem occurs when linking the following into one exe:
program.exe
A.dll (references C.dll, but was built when C.dll was versioned 1.1)
B.dll (references C.dll, but was built when C.dll was versioned 1.2)
C.dll (current version, 1.2)

When I run the program, I get an error saying "could not load assembly
version 1.1", and the opposite happens if I try to link in version
1.1.

Here is the actual output:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly
'UltraScan.Common, Version=1.20.3120.26421, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=null' or one of

Solutions:

1. Update A.dll by recompiling
2. Update A.dll by editing the IL

As this is dotfuscator, I am not convinced you can simply set up a
config and fix it, although that does work for normal "newer version"
issues.

Your main issue here is you have your software out of sync and you are
trying to mash it all together into a single assembly. There are other
tools to do this, of course, but I am not sure they will not have the
same issue.

Peace and Grace,
