    I’m having a heck of a time trying to load assemblies for plug ins based on ASP.NET user controls dynamically.

    It looks like Fusion works for plug in architectures except for ASP.NET based plugins.

  2. junfeng says:

    I am not quite sure why fusion has anything do to with plug-in, ASP.Net or not.

  3. Scott says:

    Isn’t Fusion the part of the framework that loads assemblies into the AppDomain?

  4. junfeng says:

    Yes, but plug-in model is more than loading an assembly.
