Questions about deploying a service

P: n/a
I am creating a service that uses a few assemblies that are already
existing...yet constantly being updated. I need to be able to use these
libraries. Basically,

I want to deploy my service on SERVER A that has SUPERWIDGET assemblies
installed. I need to develop my service on my PC that also has
SUPERWIDGET assemblies installed. When deployed, I want to make sure
that it uses the assemblies for support routines installed on SERVER A
and not ones in my bin directory.

How do I make these references when developing my service? What happens
if I don't copy local? Do the assemblies have to reside in the same
path on SERVER A? What happens when the service is deployed and the
assemblies are updated on SERVER A?

Can anybody clear this up for me? Thanks.

Hmm, do you have UNC access to the superwidget folder on SERVERA? If so then
make references to that server using the UNC path, e.g.

\\SERVERA\SUPERWIDGET\dllname.dll

If this is an intranet situation with active directory then you should be
able to do this. You should then be assured that whenever you build & deploy
your app you are using the latest library references.
