Security Error with .NET assembly on Mapped Drive

Hi all,


I'm getting the following error when trying to call a .net assembly that is located on a mapped drive. I've found the following: that seems to indicate how to fix this error. However, the error persists. Both the vi and the dll reside together on my mapped drive. This is a mapped drive from parallels (i.e. the files reside on my MAC partition). It's a long story on why it isn't pratical to put them on my local c drive. I would like to find a way to get them to work on this mapped drive.

This should be a system security issue. Network located code has only partial trust. Try to compile the assembly with the AllowPartiallyTrustedCallersAttribute

Hope it helps

Unfortunately that isn't possible in this case as the assembly is from a vendor.

You need to grant code trust to the network drive. The correct tool to do this is most likely microsofts caspol( )



Should be something like:

caspol -q -machine -addgroup 1 -url file://K:/* FullTrust -name "K map"
