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