Assembly class changed without keeping compatibility in .NET 2 ?

I am migratingcode from .NET 1.1 to 2 (Raibow project) and in this code we
where storing assembly name in database just to be able to load it
dynamically later.
Code in the register method was
// Get Assembly name

string assemblyName = portalModule.Ge tType().BaseTyp e.Assembly.Code Base;
assemblyName = assemblyName.Su bstring(assembl yName.LastIndex Of('/') +1);
//Get name only

this code was giving the simple assembly name

this has been broken in .NET 2 as we get the name of the temporary assembly
generated by compiler, each call gives a different name.

How to get the ability to get dynamically the name of an assembly ?

Thanks for help.

To get the assembly name from current executing application in .NET 2.0,
you may use following code:

System.Reflecti on.Assembly.Get ExecutingAssemb ly().FullName

Hope this help,

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to maintain compatability with assemblies providing the interfaces remains the same?

Maybe I haven't had that "a-ha" moment yet, but I think the new approach to web projects is a step in the wrong direction.
