Hi all,

have an assembly with some user-defined functions. To use it in our another project (and in VS designer) i had to add this snippet to my config(s):

 

    <Telerik.Reporting>

        <AssemblyReferences>
            <add name="MyAssemblyName" version="1.0.0.0" culture="neutral" publicKeyToken="null" />
        </AssemblyReferences>
    </Telerik.Reporting>‚Äč

 

All this worked fine until we decided to have real version numbers for all assemblies in our solution. So, one day, we replaced

[assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.0.0")]

with

[assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.*")]

 in the AssemblyInfo.cs file of MyAssemblyName project. Now Telerik Reporting cannot resolve MyAssemblyName because of the wrong version number.

 

So, my question is: is there any way to have an AssemblyReference without specifying the exact version number?

Thanks in advance.

 

P.S. I've tried omitting "version" altogether, specifying version ranges, wildcards etc. Nothing helps :-(.

Hello Dmitry,

The following configuration of the Standalone Designer tool (version 9.2.15.930) allows us to load the assembly regardless its version attribute (only by name):
<Telerik.Reporting>
    <AssemblyReferences>
        <add name="MySignedAssembly1" />
    </AssemblyReferences>
</Telerik.Reporting>
Note that the external assembly must be copied in the execution folder of the application in order to be loaded.

If you need further help, please elaborate what version of Telerik Reporting is in use, and what are the assembly settings.

Regards,
Stef
