Default Assemblies

Can anyone help me with this problem. I have an assembly located on a server. I need this assembly to be used by an application located on another machine. I do not want the assembly to be copied locally. Unfortunately, all the examples that I have seen in deploying C# applications involve either the assembly being located in the same directory or in GAC. The problem with GAC (and I might have done something wrong here) is that if I try to install the application on a machine that does not have the assembly copied locally, the install programs does it anyway. One more thing, I do have the option in properties for copying the assembly locally to false. If anyone could help me with this I would appriciate it. Thank you.

A bit of reading on Shared Assemblies and codeBase settings in application configurations would help you in this regard.

Thank you Ankur Verma. I did read about the shared assemblies and also on changing the config file using codebase option. I was hoping for another way of doing it. But again thank you for your help. I will see if I can get it to work using the codebase.

Thank you,
