Using AXBrowser in a strong names assembly

Nak
Hi there

I'm trying to use the Microsoft Web Browser within a strong names .NET
assembly that I have written. Unfortunately I am getting the following
linker problem as the Interop DLL that was created does not have a strong
name,

"Unable to emit assembly: Referenced assembly 'Interop.SHDocV w' does not
have a strong name"

Any ideas of work arounds for this? Thanks loads in advance.

Hi there,

I've tried a few methods of signing the Interop DLL that the IDE creates
but had no luck. So I used "tlbimp" to import a new *signed* Interop DLL
into my Bin folder. This is great with the exception that the web browser
Usercontrol in the toolbox refers to the *unsigned* version. Any ideas on
how I get the Interop DLL ssigned and have it possible for me to create a
web browser by dragging and dropping from the toolbox?

I've found quite a few threads on this subject but none with a solid
("Yes this worked for me!"). People just don't seem to bother letting other
people know if they found a solution, but anyway, I'm sure loads of people
are using this web browser with signed assemblies, thanks for any help!

Nick,

I do not known a solution and do not want to check it because probably
Charles knows it, and when he sees this he will probably answer his fellow
Brittain, he did a lot in this and I remember me very much messages a little
bit like this between him and Fergus.

So wait a while not everybody is looking every hour to this newsgroup.

Cor,

Cheers, I shall, just hacking away at it and flitting to and fro OE,
VB.NET IDE and IE. :-)

Hi again Cor,

Just incase I've missed anything, I am actually using this to display
context sensitive Help in my application. I didn't want to use the HTML
help program because I absolutely hate it, but maybe I have missed other
ways that this can be done? I could use a rich text box but I think that's
a bit clumsy compared to HTML, I don't know, have you any ideas?

I've successfully used the HTMLEditor to display HTML Help:

I don't know if it would fix the strong name issue.

Nick,

When you have seen all my messages in past about the in my idea at least
flaw integration from a client side help system in Visual Studio (even the
older), you would not have asked that too me.

When I write that, than they most (not guys as Herfried) come with as answer
the documentation for programmers and not for endusers.

However as far as I know are there no plans to do something for that.

I sometimes get the idea that operatoroverloa ding is much more important
than endusers for developpers.

Hi Cor,

Yeah, it certainly seems that way. Which is a big shame because the end
user is the most important aspect of the application, they have to be able
to use it. I can use it, but then again I did write it! Maybe Microsoft
will pull their fingers out and making something a little nicer than HTML
help and integrate it with the .NET IDE.

Hi Tim,

I'ts a little more in-depth that I first had hoped, but then again, HTML
editing is not an easy thing to achieve by anyone's standards, Dreamweaver
messes me about enough let alone anything else. I am thinking that it would
be better for me to remove all "editing" aspects of the library so that it
just displays, but this is allot of work to do. So instead I am still
thinking of looking elsewhere, don't get me wrong, this would definitely
achieve what I desire but it will also do a whole lot more, and I can't risk
adding new bugs at this late stage. Thanks for the reference though,
recommended to anyone who needs HTML editing functionality.

Hello sirs, I am trying to understand how strong names work. Suppose I have lib.dll (a .net library), and also MyApplication.exe (a .NET WinApp) . MyApplication uses lib.dll . Suppose someone decompiles lib.dll and replaces code parts, and then recompiles again. When MyApplication.exe will load lib.dll the next time, will it detect that it is a different dll if they have strong names?
