CodeBase or Redirection to download the latest version of an Assem

P: n/a
Don
Is it possible to configure an application to use CodeBase and Redirection
(Config file) or any other means, to load the latest version of an Assembly
from a specified URL.

Using Codebase i need to specify the exact version to download from a URL.
Using Redirection i need to specify the new version of the assembly.

Is it not possible to configure (Config file) the application to look for
the latest version of the assembly in a specific URL.

I'm using VS.NET 2003.
I need to create outlook add-in, which references a private assembly (but
will check a url for any newer versions of the assembly)

Wrong again,
Publisher Policy isn't the answer (it needs to be placed in GAC)..
