posting something to prove my existence in this blogosphere 🙂
The project i am working on is a great learning thing for me working on reflection
Well to give a brief idea i have to create a utility which will compare 2 versions of a set of dlls and find the version compatibility issues arising out of it and make a report from the compatibility issues.
This is done by going through the members of a dll and populating a object model.
and later on comparing both the object models version 2.X and version 3.X to find the compatibility issues.
To do that have to use
- Reflection for reading .Net assemblies
- Tlbinf32.dll for reading COM files
Reflection was cool with loads of example to refer to on net and also the great MSDN
but the typle lib information dll tlibinf32.dll took away my sleep since
- Its no longer supported by MS
- The help file that i found referred to some code samples which were written for the previous release of tlbinf32.dll
just my luck…
so it was all RnD for the tlbinf32.dll for me. but finally got it done
will publish a post soon with some basic examples of tlbinf32.dll over here so that others dont have to go through the ordeal i went through.
ciao for now
