Long time no blog. I’ve been working a super-secret-squirrel project. If you’ve been following MSFT in the news lately, you can probably guess what I was doing for the last month. But I’m back now <whew/>.
The good news is that WindowsFormsIntegration.dll has finally found a home. We’re now part of the WinFX installation, so you’ll find us with all the other WPF assemblies. Here’s the text of the readme that will ship with the Vista Beta2 release:
Install Location of WindowsFormsIntegration.dll has changed
The WindowsFormsIntegration.dll assembly is now installed during the WinFX installation and is registered in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). Its default location is C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\WinFX\v3.0. Be sure to reference this version of the assembly in your projects.
The WindowsFormsIntegration.dll assembly was previously installed in folders C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\WPF\v3.0\ and C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\Cider\. Do not use these versions of the assembly, because they are incompatible with current versions of the Windows Presentation Foundation.
We shouldn’t ever have to worry about this again. Or so we may hope.
