Hi there,

I have downloaded the latest release of CBFS
There're 3 versions of CBFSNet.dll for .Net 2.0 - one for each platform (x86, x64 and ia64)

The problem is thouogh all of them have the same file version (in VERSION_INFO resource), the .Net assembly versions are different: for x86 for x64 for ia64

We are writing AnyCPU C# project that references CBFSNet.dll. And it should run on both x86 and x64 platforms. The reference is the project-wide setting, so we can only reference one of them (currently we use 32-bit). Our installer places the platform-dependent version into the installation folder.

But CBFSNet.dll is a strongly signed assembly, and since referenced x86 version differs from x64 version the assembly cannot be loaded on x64 systems due to strong name signature validation.

Is it possible for you to have releases with the same .Net assembly versions?

We had the same problem in the past and was able to resolve it by removing strong name signature. Of course they have provided the source in order for us to be able to do so.
Anyhow its a serious problem for us too as we dont want to recompile without signature when every new version is release. I already asked if there was possibility of unsigned assemblies to be included in each release but havent got a possitve response yet.

Great to hear that, Eugene!

Do you have any estimation on when such build will be available?
