I developed a few Class Library Projects and compiled to DLLs. These libraries serves as a standard library that anyone here will be required to add in their succeeding projects.
On the server/production machine, I have copied these DLLs in a specify folder "C:\Application\bin\".
I've created a project that will be used as a template by other developers. This project already has these DLLs referenced and DLLs are on the output directory of the project. So I zip this project and send it to our developers.
Now when we try to create a new project based on this template, its working locally. But when I copy the .exe compiled file of this project to our server and run it, it gives out an error about an assembly missing which I'm assuming is because it is looking for the assembly on the same folder as the exe file. What can we do so that the exe will reference the DLLs from the folder "C:\Application\bin"?
I've read about the GAC but we don't want the DLLs in the C:\System\Assembly directory. We want to put them on our on directory.
