Assembly does not allow partially trusted callers

I keep getting this error and no luck fixing:

Exception Details: System.Security.SecurityException: That assembly does not allow partially trusted callers.

Phew this seems a common problem. Mostly solved by moving to another provider that can activate the full trust for you...

If this isn't an option you can try the modified controls found here:
(extract the mxp file using the adobe extension manager)

Or you can take a look in the code that should be on this location or similar:
C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8\Configuration\ServerBehaviors\Shared\ASP.Net\Scripts\Source\DreamweaverCtrls.cs
(info found on:
In the code file you will have to find the System.Security stuff with RequestPermition and .Deny and .Demand and so.

A last resort would be: don't use those controls. (very disappointing answer - i know)

Kind regards.

Use the Microsoft .NET Framework configurator to give the assembly that tries to use that locked down assembly full trust.

If that doesn't help: create a WCF wrapper around that assembly and let it run in a Windows Service. Consume the WCF wrapper from the pages.

Kind regards.

BTW: the page will get compiled to a DLL (class assembly) and is placed in the bin folder. Ditch the dynamic recompile and add a strong name for your assembly. This will easy up the rights management you are battling with.

I'm very new to this and not sure what you mean.  I know I can't mess with the .net config as I'm hosted through

Yeah tried that and still not working.  I don't know how to do it without the controls.  Been working on it for a week now.
