Free .NET Fusion (Assembly Loading) workshop

Richard Grimes from IDesign has posted a free workshop, kind of a handson lab, that explains how .NET loads it’s assemblies.

The workshop teaches you:

  • Location of .NET assemblies and how to change the default locations
  • Using .NET tools to resolve problems with assembly locations and how to fix broken applications
  • Sharing assemblies with the GAC, updating GAC dependencies with publisher policy files, GAC references
  • Dynamic loading of assemblies, partial named assemblies
