When trying to import new custom controls into Visual Studio 2008 toolbox. I select the .dll off a network drive and recieve the error

"request for the permission of type '".

This works fine if the .dll is local. The network is a Full Trust sharing. How do I create a work around for this problem?

Win 7 x64, VS 2008

Well, the best way would be to copy the dll to a local location. Not only would it solve this problem, it would also overcome any problems that might occur when you lose your network-connection for some reason.
You can also use the .NET configuration tool in your administrative tools to add the desired dll to the assembly cache and configure the rights through there. The tool is shipped as part of the .NET SDK.
