Re: Deploying assembly for COM interop

Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

There is a known bug (in both VS 2002 and VS 2003) where Regasm fails to 
register properly if you are trying to register an assembly and the 
dependency can't be found.

If you run RegAsm in the bin dir, usually the dependencies are copied 
locally.

However, setup projects run regasm from the obj dir (for other important 
reasons), where the dependency is not available. In this case, setup 
projects will fail to register correctly.

The workaround is to add the assembly to your project as a "file", right 
click in the File System Editor, and select Add File, and navigate to the 
assembly in the bin dir.  Usually that gets regasm to work and we get the 
proper registration information.
