Adding an assembly search path to the IDE

P: n/a
Bob
I've seen an article for how to add search paths to a VS.Net XML config file
so you don't need to register DLL's in the GAC to have them work in plugins.
But the article was for VS.Net 2002, not 2003, and the XML file it showed
looked completely different than the one of the same name on my machine.
Anyone know where I could find updated information on this?

TIA,
Bob

Hi,

Here is a link to do it with a registry key.

This article appears to only talk about how to get assemblies to show up in
the Add Reference dialogue box.

But just in case the article did apply to my question, I unregistered my
plugin DLL's from the GAC and then added their paths to the registry as the
article instructed. The DLL's then showed up in the Add Reference dialogue
box (which I don't care about), and my plugin failed to load because the IDE
could not find its assemblies.
