    I was wanting to post a few of my modules out on the new Marketplace, which another question about that in a second, for the community to use, but they need to be polished up a little more before doing so. One thing I am trying to polish is the ability to deploy my module using the Upload DLL functionality. However I keep getting this error when I try to upload my DLL. "Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.".

    I know that the Newsletter module threw the same exception if there was an old assembly out there, but that would not be the case with my module as it has never existed before. I can't seem to find anything about making your module uploadable in any of the documentation. Is there a loader method/class or somethingthing else all together that I need to implement?

    My question about the Marketplace is whether or not I should just upload my donated modules there or should I use the Code Library still? I can't decide since all the modules so far on the Marketplace are free as well. What is the thought process I shoudl use in deciding where to posy my modules? I mean I want a shot at the give aways though why I'm thinking Marketplace!

    Hi Garry Clark,

    The pluggable modules are actually separate code libraries that usually have reference to the project and all required dlls. I am not sure what exactly your Upload Dll functionality does. Can you share some more information? We have similar functionality, but it works only for controls. The problem you have should be fixed if you move the generated dll from your module to the project's bin.

    All the best,
