.Net Winforms dll issue when making new dll

P: 84
Hi.
I am making a windows application project which uses a few dlls which have been developed by other people.

Each time, a new dll is generated, its version is updated. If I drop this new dll on top of the existing dll then applications which were compiled using the previous version do not work. .Net complains that the version of dll are not correct!

As far as I was aware, I could drop a new dll and and application should work fine as I have only added the dll as a reference to the project and these are valid COM objects.

Please help as I am not sure what to do and this is causing realy agony at my end!

Once you add a DLL to your project, select it and go to the properties. I *believe* there is option about "not carring" about the specific version of a DLL in there.
If not, you may have to do some editing of some sort of resource file.
