Global Assembly Cache VB.NET Application
Posted on 2008-06-12
I am using a VB.NET addid called EasyPDF to allow users to convert Word, XL files, etc, to VB.NET. Everything works OK on the development machine, however when I compile the application and attempt to deploy it to a machine other than the development machine I got the following error message:
Unable to install or run the application. The application
Requires that assembly BCL.easyPDF.Interop.EasyPDFPrinter
Version 188.8.131.52 be installed in the Global Assembly Cache
I then went into Solution Explorer/References and set the Copy Local Option to True for EasyPDFPrinter. This then bypaseed the above message and allowed the install to proceed. The application runs (there is noting in the GAC), however the conversion to PDF won't proceed and now returns a message "Cannot create ActiveX component".
Can anyone please help with a solution?
