At the following path

C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\E1341025\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\ProjectAssemblies


I have some assemblies being created and stored under various folders, with weird naming.

Can anyone shed some light on this.  Under what conditions are the folders and dll's created?

Can this be turned off in Visual Studio, and how?

Visual Studio .NET 2003 creates temporary files for project-level assemblies such as the assembly that contains the user control. These temporary files are located in the %APPDATA%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\ProjectAssemblies folder. Visual Studio .NET 2003 then loads the assemblies from the temporary files into memory. If you use folder redirection to redirect your Application Data folder to a folder that is not fully trusted, such as a network shared folder, Visual Studio .NET 2003 cannot load the assembly.

So if you  are using user control its going to create such tmp files in that folder, so if possible avoiod usage of user control.

So there's no way to turn this "off"  ?
