  I'm new to IronRuby. I'm trying to require a .net assembly but I have
the following error message. Any help will be very much appreciated.

Note :

MyApp.Application.dll references MyApp.Core.dll and both are in the same
folder C:\MyApp\Trunk\Bin\

Code :

require 'C:\MyApp\Trunk\Bin\MyApp.Application.dll'
include MyApp::Application

def main
  print ZlibCompression.Decompress(ZlibCompression.Compress("toto"))

if __FILE__ == $0

Error message:

Unhandled exception:
mscorlib:0:in `ResolveType': Could not load file or assembly
'MyApp.Core, Version=, Culture=neutral, Public
KeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the
file specified. (System::IO::FileNotFoundException
        from mscorlib:0:in `ResolveTypeHandle'

currently, you have to copy MyApp.Core.dll to the location where ir.exe

For me it works with a path too

But I do use forward slashes

It does have some weirdness though, because sometimes I have to actually
copy the assembly to the directory where ir.exe lives. I'm not sure as
when exactly that needs to happen.
