Is it possible to use private assemblies in a Windows Service? There seems to be a shortcoming in the .net assembly discovery algorithm.

P: n/a
There appears to be an interesting shortcoming in .NET's assembly discovery
algorithm for private assemblies which must be in the execution directory or
below (when specified in a config file).

I tried creating a .NET Windows Service using private assemblies, but it
appears there is no way these can be found in such an environment insofar as
the default directory is not the Windows Service startup directory.

Am I missing something here?
