<dependentAssembly> Element 

Encapsulates binding policy and assembly location for each assembly. Use one dependentAssembly element for each assembly.


<dependentAssembly> 
</dependentAssembly>

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

None.

Child Elements

Element Description

assemblyIdentity

Contains identifying information about the assembly. This element must be included in each dependentAssembly element.

codeBase

Specifies where the runtime can find a shared assembly if it is not installed on the computer.

bindingRedirect

Redirects one assembly version to another.

publisherPolicy

Specifies whether the runtime applies publisher policy for this assembly.

Parent Elements

Element Description

assemblyBinding

Contains information about assembly version redirection and the locations of assemblies.

configuration

The root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and .NET Framework applications.

runtime

Contains information about assembly binding and garbage collection.

The following example shows how to encapsulate assembly information for two assemblies.

<configuration>
   <runtime>
      <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
         <dependentAssembly>
            <assemblyIdentity name="myAssembly"
                              publicKeyToken="32ab4ba45e0a69a1"
                              culture="neutral" />
            <!--Redirection and codeBase policy for myAssembly.-->
         </dependentAssembly>
         <dependentAssembly>
            <assemblyIdentity name="mySecondAssembly"
                              publicKeyToken="32ab4ba45e0a69a1"
                              culture="neutral" />
            <!--Redirection and codeBase policy for mySecondAssembly.-->
         </dependentAssembly>
      </assemblyBinding>
   </runtime>
</configuration>
