You can go for Reflection... You can read a dll using reflection
Assembly a = Assembly.Load("helloworld");

Pass this object to another app.

hmm I don't know how to call later methods in another application if I good using it. I have server and client app. on server I have my class HelloWorld(this class can be in DLL what using server but its not that important), I just want to return this class to client app as assembly, on RemotableObject class I have only interface with method what returns this assembly class. Check my code... remote client have error during Assembly RemoteClass = objget.GetClass();
Could not load file or assembly 'HelloClass, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies.

why? I can't send my class/dll to another app and use thier methods?
server app:

...

using HelloClass;
 

namespace RemoteServerApplication

{

    public class HelloServer : MarshalByRefObject, IExecute

    {
 

        public Assembly GetClass()

        {

            Assembly a = Assembly.Load("HelloClass");

            return a;

        }
 

    }

}
 

HelloClass in dll file(referenced only to server):

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Text;
 

namespace HelloClass

{

    public class HelloWorld

    {

        public void TestMe()

        {

            Console.WriteLine("Test string what will be writen in client.");

        }

    }

}
 

remotable object with interface(referenced to client and server):

public interface IExecute

    {

        Assembly GetClass();

    }
 
 

client gets this assembly:

IExecute objget = (IExecute)Activator.GetObject(

                    typeof(IExecute), "tcp://localhost:8085/RemoteTestRef");

            if (objget == null)

                Console.WriteLine("Could not locate server");

            else

            {

           

                Assembly RemoteClass = objget.GetClass();

}
