Load an assemly from a network share
« on: March 24, 2006, 05:25:34 PM »
I finally finished my first .net app and now I am having trouble loading it.  All of our customization is located on a network drive and then AutoCAD is mapped to it.  I know there are security issues with .net assemblies and network shares.

So... does anyone know how to run a .net dll from a network share?  I really don't want to copy all of our customization to the user's hard drives.

Any help is much appreciated!

You can't run managed code from a machine other than your own without adjusting your .NET framework configuration. You can adjust your security settings by going to: Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Configuration

Hope that helps.

Tim,
Did some more research into this and found that there is a command line version of the .Net Framework Configuration wizard called caspol.exe.  You can easily script this to add a trust to the network share.

Look here for all the info you ever wanted...

If you are interested in adding a policy via code, you can look here:
