you can't load a .dll via the internet. A .dll isn't an application it is just a collection of functions.

Is it possuble to access it from asp.net same way you  you do it with a Windows  application?

When you are creating/building the Web app add the dll as a reference to the project then you will be able to access the dll's functions.

Hi Victor;

To your last post in the other thread, "I am able to run a DLL file from another another windoes  App by using it as a reference. I would like run the sane file using a web link, trying to find out the best approach.", as David stated you can not use a link to point to the dll and have it run one of its function. Can you not load it into your application at design time?

Hi,

I will create a web application using ASP.net and see if i can use sane approach used with the windows app. This would avoid  need to develop another  web application. How about web services? Not too familiar with web applications just trying to find out if i can avoid devloping another web application by somehow using the DLL file.

Why not just add the dll to the current Web app and use it like you do in a windows form app.

I will try this approach, thought there  might  a way to avoid using ASP.NET.
Thanks,

If it is an Asp.Net app you will not avoid using ASP.NET.
