Can anyone shed some light on this?

I suggest you open the Constring project on its own and clean and recompile the project.  Make sure the strong naming assembly attributes are removed first, and that you delete all Constring.dll files from your project directory and machine.

Then, in your other projects that reference the Constring project, remove the references and the Constring project from your solution, compile (you may need to comment out the usage of that class), add the Constring project and references back in, and recompile once again.  Hopefully that will clean out the revision problems you are having.

Let me know if you have success or failure with this approach.

Regards,

Bg

BTW, I have been having trouble with my email, and my response to yours was bounced 3 times.  I thought it finally went through, but I wasn't sure.  Did you get it?  It was the one about the meanings of titles.

Couple of questions...
1. Did you put this assembly in GAC or it is local?
2. The assembly ConStrig is strongly named. Did you modify the assembly after compiling your app and putting the new assembly in GAC.

Tom KnowltonWeb developerAuthor Commented:
ConString should not be strongly named.

Nothing should be installed in the GAC from my program.  If it is, it is my mistake.

Here is the current AssemblyInfo.vb file for ConString:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Imports System.Reflection
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices

' General Information about an assembly is controlled through the following
' set of attributes. Change these attribute values to modify the information
' associated with an assembly.

' Review the values of the assembly attributes

<Assembly: AssemblyTitle("")>
<Assembly: AssemblyDescription("")>
<Assembly: AssemblyCompany("")>
<Assembly: AssemblyProduct("")>
<Assembly: AssemblyCopyright("")>
<Assembly: AssemblyTrademark("")>
<Assembly: CLSCompliant(True)>

'The following GUID is for the ID of the typelib if this project is exposed to COM
<Assembly: Guid("AADEA451-F5D1-4E04-B440-0E3D452D1911")>

' Version information for an assembly consists of the following four values:
'
'      Major Version
'      Minor Version
'      Build Number
'      Revision
'
' You can specify all the values or you can default the Build and Revision Numbers
' by using the '*' as shown below:

<Assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.*")>
'<Assembly: AssemblyDelaySign(False)>
'<Assembly: AssemblyKeyFile("..\..\key.snk")>

One important thing I should mention is the Solution is stored a network share, and I have formatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows 2000, Office 2000, and VS .NET.

The ConString.dll WAS strongly named before I formatted my hard drive.  I am not sure if I installed it in the GAC or not.

The AssemblyInfo file for ConString used to have these two lines:

<Assembly: AssemblyDelaySign(False)>
<Assembly: AssemblyKeyFile("..\..\key.snk")>


I removed these lines after I started having trouble (long story) and rebuilt the Assembly, thinking that doing so would remove the strong naming.

Everything I did was based on a response to the following question:

I believe the advice was sound, but I screwed up somewhere along the line.  What really caused problems for me was when I tried to use Office.Interop Assemblies for Office XP, even though I only had Office 2000 installed.

I am also getting:

The dependency 'ConString' could not be found.

Even though I don't reference it anywhere nor can I find it anywhere in the source code.

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in invreports.dll

Additional information: File or assembly name ConString, or one of its dependencies, was not found.

When I compile I get:

Could the Assembly Manifest be corrupted?

Do I need to offer more points for this question?

Yeah, I tried that with ConString first, but some other .DLL was referencing it still (it seems).

What I finally ended up doing was backing up the entire folder for my project, then deleting ALL .DLL's for the project.

Then I rebuilt the entire project, and this looks like it has gotten rid of the problem.  The reports are working now for the first time in a long time.

Whew!

I think my system is finally back on its feet since this whole mess started.

I still did not get your e-mail on the meaning of the different titles.  I read somewhere online that "Engineer" is a title that must be given to you by the State, indicating you follow a certain set of procedures, etc. when constructing software.  Apparently it is not a title to be thrown around carelessly (even though I think it sounds really really cool to say "Software Engineer"...LOL)
