.DLL Not Found - ClickOnce Deployment

Hi,

I am having a right game with a .dll that is for an API for the program I am building.

The older DLL ivrlla.dll is an old .dll so they built an ivrlla.net.dll wrapper for it. I reference this in my code and it has no problems just referencing that in my debugger.

It runs sweet on my development machine. As soon as I do a click once deployment and it tries to run it on the other machine it complains to be missing the ivrlla.dll.

I have ticked copy local for the ivrlla.net.dll, surely this should be copying the original ivrlla.dll as well as the ivrlla.net.dll is a wrapper for it?

I cannot add a reference for the older ivrlla.dll as it is stating that it is not a valid assembly or COM object.

Please someone help me before my monitor goes out the window :)

I need this to run on another machine.

Cheers,

James

Hi Ktaczala,

The DLL isn't included but the wrapper is, it won't let me include the DLL because of the above error.

Then you may have to use a 3rd party setup installer.

INNO setup compiler is a good free one (Donations appreciated).

Hi Ktaczala,

That's what I did I ended up using the Installshield Limited Edition installer.

Shame ClickOnce was playing up :(

Cheers,
