HELP - how to reference 2 different versions of the SAME DLL in a VS.NET 2005 Windows App project??

P: n/a
Greetings all,

Here's an interesting problem that (oddly) has never happened to me
before:
================================================== ====
A. I just purchased 2 different controls from the same 3rd party
developer.

B. Each of the controls requires adding a reference to a base class
DLL called
KineticaRT.Controls.DLL.

C. Control #1 appears to demand only version 1.2.0.0 of this base
DLL;

D. Control #2 appear to demand only version 1.00.2848.5685 of this
base DLL;

E. When I add (in VS.NET2005) a reference to v1.2.0.0 of the DLL, I
get no problems for Control #1, but Control #2 still demands I "add a
reference" for v1.00.2848.5685

{here's the challenge...}

F. When I add a reference to v1.00.2848.5685 of the DLL, I get the
error message that "An assembly with that name has already been added
to your project".

:-|

Can anyone provide with any insights on how I can reference BOTH these
versions of the SAME DLL in my project, in so doing make BOTH the
controls function, and get my project to build?

TIA,
- Mark

I don't think you're going to get a solution for that problem. You're going
to have to use one or the other. But it remains to be seen.
