Versioning applications and dll for update

  • 14 years ago

    I have a program tha is composed of an exe file and a dll. I have a problem when i want to update the dll because i must update the exe file. Is there anyway to call a dll with version equal o greater than current version for example?

    I have tester with the .config in the exe file but i will develop other applications that will call the dll so i can not change the .config of all programs each time i update the dll... I also found that i can put in the gac a binding redirect policy but i can not add redirects to all previous versions to the new dll each time i update it.

    How can i do it?

    i will preserve backward compatibility of course.
