Ok, so it sounds like you are using a .NET assembly.
Simply putting in the directory won't let you use it. You need to have a reference to it when you compile the code.
If you are using Visual Studio, you can do the following:
Put the DLL into the root of your ASP.NET project, then make a regular .NET reference to it. Once you click "Add Reference..." you'll get to the .NET assemblies tab in the reference dialog. Then you click "Browse" which should open up the root directory of the project. In there you'll find the DLL you want to use, select it and ok out of everything. Visual Studio will then copy the DLL into the bin directory for you and the code that uses that assembly will then work.
Work smarter, not harder.
If I am compiling a DLL on the fly using the ICodeCompiler, how would I go about using the methods/properties of the newly compiled DLL in the application? The DLL has been compiled and resides in the BIN directory though I am still not able to reference it.
