Hi,

I am adding reference of an existing assembly (assembly1.dll developed in house) to a Web site project. Environment is Windows 7, VS2010. Target platform is 32-bit, target framework is .Net 2.0

Getting the following error:

A reference to 'c:\source\project1\assemblies\assembly1.dll' could not be added. Unable to retrieve assembly fullname
Parameter name: assemblyPath

Please let me know if you have any suggestions, thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure what you're trying to add a reference to is actually an assembly and not a C/C++ DLL?

Simplest way to find out would be to try to load the assembly using ildasm and see what it tells you.

Also, is it actually an assembly or just a module? It would be rare, but you can create modules in .NET that have no manifest information. The modules are then combined into an assembly at a later point.
