Probing path

Hi.

The docs say the <probing> element needs to refer to subdirectories of
the application main directory. My windows application needs to locate
an assembly in a directory above the application directory. Is it
possible? Can I use the <probing> element to locate an assembly
anywhere on the machine?

Thanks,
Robert Scheer

Robert,

an assembly in a directory above the application directory. Is it
possible?
Yes, if you load it explicitly with Assembly.LoadFr om(), or create a
new appdomain and set its base directory to the assembly location.

Can I use the <probing> element to locate an assembly
anywhere on the machine?


No

I am writing an installer for our application. The installer places the application .exe in the install directory and then creates a \bin subfolder and places all .dlls in the \bin subfolder. When we run the application it throws a "file not found" exception upon attempted loading of the dependent .dlls. I have a probing element in my application's config file: <configuration> <runtime>

Alright, I think I have a better perception of assemblies and environment variables now. The question I had initially posted was pertaining setting of environment variables using the VSI installer. This was presumed essential for specifying the paths to certain dlls. Subsequently, the idea was dropped, and the appication configuration file approach was adopted. However, the application is not able to resolve the assembly location, and...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
