Indirect reference is being made to assembly Interop
Posted on 2006-11-22
I am getting an error on one of my development machines when I try to "run" my project in debug mode. It compiles without errors, but when I try to run it in debug mode the error comes up. This SAME EXACT code on two other development machines does not give this error. What could be missing on the one development machine that might cause this error.
"Indirect reference is being made to assembly Interop.WESTrafficServer version 126.96.36.199, which contains 'WESEvaluationObjects._clsEvaluation.TrafficPattern'. This Project references a prior version of Interop.WESTrafficServer version 188.8.131.52. To use 'WESEvaluationObjects._clsEvaluation.TrafficPattern', you must replace the reference to Interop.WESTrafficServer with version 184.108.40.206 or higher."
I know FOR A FACT that the COM object and the .NET project are referencing the exact same COM DLL and there is no version descrepancy. The COM DLL's are VB6 dlls. The computer that gives the error does NOT have the VB6 runtime installed, but the other two machines do. Do you have to have the VB6 runtime installed to use COM in .NET apps?Surely not.
