question about Assemblies

Are assemblies the same as libraries (i.e. C/C++ libraries)?. I know
they may have security attributes etc - but at a conceptual level, are
they a means of partitioning code into modular, logical units?

Yes, but the format is somewhat different.

Hi Susan,

Technically an assembly is composed of modules (files) but most assemblies
have a single file. Also, an assembly can be also an .exe, not always a dll.
But for assemblies that are class libraries (.dll), yes, at conceptual level
they are like Win32 DLLs or ActiveX dlls.


Best regards,

During building of one of my applications for deployment it occurred to me that I was using a common assembly, that most of our future applications will be using.

Hello, I am trying to use vs.net 2005 to migrate a project originally in vs.net 2003. I started with creation of a "web site", and then created folders for each component of the site. I read somewhere that each folder under the "web site" is compiled in separate assembly. I however, did not find that the "web site" creation in vs.net 2005 created any AssemblyInfo.cs file.

Greetings , I'm studying for a MS exam and I'm a little confused about assemblies. Not what they are but just a specific comment that I'm reading and it doesn't make sense to me. It reads "Assembly resource files are preferred for use with localized data that is not tied directly to the user interface such as message box text" My question is why wouldn't satellite assemblies be the preferred method

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
