Same assembly version, different fileversion


Recommended Posts

Hi,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

We are having problems with incompatible versions of ChartFx 6.2 that have the same assembly version. I was wondering if you could explain why you are releasing incompatible versions without changing the assembly version.

We use ChartFx and keep all our assemblies in a private directory. The ChartFx.Base.DLL we use has an assembly version 6.2.1342.0 and file version of [font= 'Calibri','sans-serif'; mso-ansi-language: EN-AU; mso-fareast-font-family: Calibri; mso-fareast-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-ascii-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-hansi-theme-font: minor-latin; mso-bidi-theme-font: minor-latin" lang=EN-AU>6.2.1859.20539. However another company has also installed ChartFx, this time into the GAC. 6.2.2530.41428. As the assembly versions are the same .net loads the version out of the GAC which is incompatible with the rest of the ChartFX DLL

This is by design. For ChartFX 6.2, the assembly version is not changed in service packs. This was done to avoid problems with earlier versions of VS that will not pick-up the new dll if the assembly version was changed. We have changed this in version 7 whcih is compatible only with VS 2005 and later versions.

For this and other reasons, Chart FX 6.2 should NOT be installed in the GAC.
