Look for bound DLLs in folder the calling DLL is in (Office AddIn) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all;

    I have an Office AddIn and it is bound to DevExpress.Data.v18.2.DLL. However, it is not finding it. This file is in the same folder that my AddIn dll is in. But according to FusLog, it doesn't look there. This is for the case of running under the VisualStudio debugger.

    FusLog reports:

    === Pre-bind state information ===
    LOG: DisplayName = DevExpress.Data.v18.2, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b88d1754d700e49a

    LOG: All probing URLs attempted and failed.

    How can I get it to also look in the folder my AddIn DLL is in?

    thanks - dave

  • Hi DavidThi808,

    Thank you for posting here.

    In order to help you find a correct forum to go ask questions, I have moved the thread to Where is the forum for ? forum.

    The CLR Forum discuss and ask questions about .NET Framework Base Classes (BCL) such as Collections, I/O, Regigistry, Globalization, Reflection. Also discuss all the other Microsoft libraries that are built on or extend the .NET Framework.

    Thank you for your understanding.
