[IronPython] What happened to InitializeModule() in IP 2.7?

Ahh, yes, in 2.7 we switched to installing the binaries into the GAC so they won't be in C:\Program Files anymore.  Instead they should be in C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\GAC_MSIL\IronPython\...

Also, are you using the 2.7 PYC w/ 2.7 or are you using the 2.6 PYC?  I'm not sure it'll make a difference but it's probably best to use the 2.7 PYC if you're not.

Thanks Dino,
OK, after installing my IP 2.7, the only IP .dll's are in c:\program files\ironpython 2.7\Silverlight\bin\*.dll. Are these the "Silverlight builds" you mentioned? If so, how would I get the standard builds?

I noticed that in my 2.6 installation, the dll's are in c:\program files\Ironpython 2.6\*.dll, they are NOT in a Silverlight directory. Maybe this is the problem?

In any case, the stub application .exe (leftover from a 2.6 build, perhaps?) seems to startup the 2.7 application .dll just fine, but would like to have the whole build process working properly if possible.

It should still be there at least I still see it in the sources.  It's not defined for Silverlight builds (I'm not sure if that's a change or not).  One thing to be careful of is that 2.6 and 2.7 do have different .NET assembly versions so they will be treated as different types.  In other words you need to re-build a 2.6 pre-compiled app to work against 2.7.

I'm running the pyc.py IronPython compiler. In the GenerateExe method, there is a call to ....GetMethod("InitializeModule"). This method was available in IP 2.6 but seems to have disappeared in IP 2.7.

I used "GetMethods()" to confirm that in IP 2.6 we have:

Int32 InitializeModule(System.Reflection.Assembly, System.String, System.String[])

but if I run in IP 2.7, the method is non-existent. This causes the GenerateExe method to fail, and the stub .exe file is not created. Fortunately, the old stub module .exe still works with the new .dll created.

Anyone know if there is something else that will work, or if the method has been renamed, or...??????
