Displaying an Assembly in the Add Reference Dialog Box

P: n/a
I have created an assembly and assigned a strong name to it. However I want
to reference it from another application and i want its name to appear in
the add reference dialog box,
I think I should add a some kind of a registry value but i don't know where
and what value.

a second question, I heard about Asp.net 2.0 and visual studio 2005
does it mean that they will also change the MCSD soon?
and If you are MCSD what are you going to do when new releases are out ?
I appreciate any help.

Hello,

Regarding your first question, you should put a copy of the assembly to the
following location:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies

(assuming the VS .NET has been installed to C:\Program Files)

Regarding the second one, I'd suggest that you asked this in the
'microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcsd' newsgroup - it's just the concentration of
knowledge on certification is much more there :-)

Hi,

In addition to what Dmitriy Lapshin has said about displaying assembly in the Add Reference dialog box.

Check this below link which describes how to show assemblies in the Add Reference dialog box that are present in user directories...

Hope this helps....
