Hi, Dave,

Did you solve your problem yet?

If not, could you try the following: Try to load the assembly using one of the static methods here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/system.reflection.assembly.aspx

(You can do "from System.Reflection import Assembly" and then call the methods using "Assembly.Load(...)").

If it works usingLoad, LoadFile, LoadFrom or LoadWithPartialName, then we know it might be some IronPython specific problem (and you can pass the loaded Assembly object to AddReference as a workaround).

If it does not work using one of those methods, then the problem is not IronPython specific, but more generic (e. G. path resolving). Then it may be interesting to know the results of ReflectionOnlyLoad and UnsafeLoadFrom.

Best regards
