    I have a winforms project which uses "plugins" which get resolved at runtime. The core project loads and displays user controls that are defined in the plugin .dlls. I have recently updated my primary project to use version 2015.3.930.40 versions of the controls. 

    When it now tries to load a "plugin" that references an older versions (example 2014.2.715.40) in gets an error.  

    I cannot control which versions of plugins other developers use to make their plugins and I need to make sure I load them by reflection. 

    I saw this older thread from 2010:

    I was hoping there was a to fix this now. 

    Thanks in advance for any help,

    Hello Scott,

    Thank you for writing.

    Perhaps you can use a binding redirect and specify the new version. The following article describes this along with other approaches for this:  Redirecting Assembly Versions. In addition, I have attached a small project which shows how this can be achieved.

    I hope this helps.
