Assembly.LoadFrom() & GAC

Timothy Parez
Posts: n/a

I use Assembly.LoadFrom to load an assembly on the hard drive
but what if the Assembly is in the gac
for example I want to get an instance of OleDbConnection.

First I do something like

Assembly providerAssembly =
Assembly.LoadFrom(Path.Combine(this.providersPath, providerDef.Assembly));

Then I use the CreateInstance method to get whatever I want
this works for assemblies which are located on the hard drive but not in
the GAC.
