Re: Security issue with Assembly in GAC and ASP.NET run-time

I tried adding this entry into my web.config:
<compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="false">
It continues to fail, but this time with a "Parser Error Message: File
or assembly name LocalLib.Common, or one of its dependencies, was not
The trace on this error is identical to the one on my top post.
One thing I've noticed that may be a problem, when I browse my Global
Assembly Cache and locate LocalLib.Common, its CodeBase attribute
This is the path I ran gacutil -i from. But I've noticed none of the
other Assemblies in the GAC have an entry for CodeBase most of them
are blank. I don't know why this would be a problem as I've given the
"Everyone" group FullControl on
/code/rangersec/locallib.common/bin/release/ just to make sure this
wasn't a NTFS security issue, but it continues to fail at run-time.
