Accuracy of installation instructions in ReadMe.txt

Post by BGood » Tue Jun 05, 2012 6:27 pm

I have a question about the initial installation procedure outline in the ReadMe.txt file distributed with the iMacros component. Specifically, step #4:
4. Copy also the other dlls from the iMacrosComponent\Bin folder to your project's bin\configuration folder. There are 10 dlls altogether. They are necessary during runtime.
Shouldn't the initial placement of iMacros.Component.dll and all its dependent assemblies be in the root project folder, with the CopyLocal property = Always. With this configuration, the assemblies will be copied into the proper bin/configuration folder based on the setting of the Build Configuration.

I followed the original installation instructions and my project builds are resulting in repeating subdirectories like the following:

/Bin/Debug/Bin/Debug/iMacrosComponent.dll
/Bin/Release/Bin/Release/iMacrosComponent.dll

Thanks.

You only need to add the 7 iim dlls directly into your project with their build property set to content and "Copy Always", imacros.component.dll should be added to your reference with copy local set to true, the other two dlls are automatically added when you reference the imacro.component.dll. Hope this helps. Thanks!

Appreciate your reponse Rguez_18. I followed the installation instructions and copied the dlls into /bin/Debug with CopyLocal=True and as a result was getting the redundant directory levels under /bin after a project build. Thanks.
