Assembly missing in GAC after Publish?

Hi,

We're using ClickOnce alreaddy more than a year for a given applicaiton,
doing more than 50 publishes without any problem.

Yesterday we made a minor change to one of our components (let's say with
the name MyAssembly), and incremented it's version (AssemblyVersio n: from
0.1.7.0 to 0.1.7.1). We did the Publish with ClickOnce, but when the users
know want to run the application they get this error:
"Unable to install or run the application. The application requires that
assembly MyAssembly Version 0.1.7.0
be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first."
This is so weird, especially when knowing we had alreaddy inremented this
version number without any problems in the past.

Anybody has any idea? Your help will be really appreciated!
Thanks a lot in advance,
Pieter

Aaargh never mind, I've found it:
What was actually happening was soem type of dll hell :-)
Another component in the project was referencing the same assembly, but did
it with a compiled version, not the source of the project. so when doing the
publish there was some conflict between the old one and the new one...

This conflict should be more visible in the output window when doing a build
:-)

Hi,
If you need to play with GAC manually, you can also refer to this

Hi Pieter,

I have been using Click Once for nearly 3 years (since beta) without any
problems. When I make a change to an application and publish this
change - I increment the project in 3 places: in the Application tab of
Project properties I click on the Assemly Information button where I
increment the assembly version number and the file version number. Then
- in the Publish tab I increment the numbers that I have been tracking
(for me it has only been the revision number. So in all 3 locations all
the numbers match. This may not be the intended way, but I have not had
any problems doing it this way.

Another thing you can do is to go to the server to the directory where
all assemblies for your application get published and delete these
subdirectories and all their contents and then start the publishing
process all over again. The only thing is that you will have to
uninstall your application from all workstations using it first so that
they will get the new assembly.

Hi Rich,

Changing version numbers manually like that would definitely solve that
problem, but is much better being done automatically as it removes human
error from the equation, i.e. forgetting to update version numbers, it's a
gripe of mine.

I use automatic version numbers by using the wild card char...

Assembly Version,

[1] [0][*] [ ]

Then I only need to change major / minor as necessary, so it can be
ignored for quick changes. But then VS isn't so reliable with keeping
everything uptodate in my experience anyway :(

Nick.

Hello, We seem to need a PIA for MSXML 4. According to the documentation, only the original publisher of a COM type library is supposed to create a .NET PIA. As far as I know, Microsoft hasn't done that yet.

Our component has a type library reference to MSXML 4, hence the...

Hello, somewhere i've read that using strong names does assure two things: 1. Assure that the content of the assembly is not modified (that's ok in my opinion) 2. Assure that the assembly is really from the "fabricator" (?) If these two point are correct (i'm not sure), i have a problem with point 2. To assure the authentity of the fabricator, the public key (which is a part of the manifest) has to be checked against a certificate.

Hi, I've read many posts in several news groups, but can't figure out how to publish my website. The specific error I'm getting (on the "successfully published website") is "Could not load the assembly 'App_Web_vxfyglsm'. Make sure that it is compiled before accessing the page". I checked - The assembly DOES exist in the target web folder.

From the project designer when I click on the "Application Files" on the "Publish" tab there are some missing assemblies that are required. I can't find a way to explicitly specify a required assembly, is this possible? I don't know WHY VS2005 thinks the assembly in question is not required, but it does. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Steve

Hello NG, I realized, that my application won't start, if a referenced assembly is missing. Basically this is understandable, but since I destribute my applictaion without a setup, it can happen that I forget one or the other .dll. Since my app depends on a whole bunch of .dll it would be great, if the app could tell me which assemblies are missing instead of not starting at all.
