Hi
I just wonder if there is possibility to merge two dll files into one dll file.
I have custom user controls, which is based on third control library (dll file), and I would like to merge this dll file into my dll control. I heard about ILMerge, I haven't tried it. Will it work ?

http://research.microsoft.com/~mbarnett/ilmerge.aspx but if the other dll is strongly named you will need the .snk to do it.

There's also ILLink (http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/UserSamples/Details.aspx?SampleGuid=b7560d78-7384-41b0-8ddf-820137305e24)
I think they both to the same. ILDASM the source, and the ilasm one IL only.
