Getting file not found exception when trying to just reference SOSS dlls

We are trying to not install the client files on every developer machine. We have referenced the two libs soss_svcdotnet.dll and soss_namedcache.dll, but we still get the file not found error for soss_svcdotnet.dll when running the application.

I ran ProcMon to see what it was looking for and it was svccli that was causing it to fail. This cannot be ref'd in a project, so I am left wondering...

MUST we install the .NET libs on every developer machine???


Hi Ron,
Yes, client libraries must be deployed using the installer. In addition to the soss_svccli.dll file that you noticed (a native library), the installer also provides registry entries and configuration files that are required at runtime.
