Hi there,

This is probably a stupid question but i wanted to double check... i have an application that is already compiled and distributed and i have just built a new DLL...

Can i distribute the dll only. Nothing in the program has changed but some classes in the dll have... Nothing will break the code .. it was internal changes but the dll is referenced in other DLL's that are part of the program...

THe dll resides in the apllication's directory... I have just replaced it and it seems to work... but i can't tell if its using the new dll or ¿???

Thanks in advance

Ian

Yes, you can  - although you already knew that ;)
To ensure that it uses the new dll, restart the application (make sure you have a backup of the old one in case it all goes horribly wrong).
What I usually do is have a help menu function that can query the assembly versions and display them. This way I can be 100% sure.
