Can I find an assembly by the file path?

How can I access the path on disk where an assembly is loaded from when I am looping through a CSharpProjectAssembly.AssemblyReferences collection instance?  The IProjectAssemblyReference does not appear to have any location property but when I debug and inspect the running variable I am able to drill down to a property called location that has the file path.  What interface do I need to cast the IProjectAssemblyReference instance to inorder to get access to the location property?

Hi Frank,

The IProjectAssembly has an Assembly property.  If the assembly was a binary assembly (.dll file) that was loaded from a path, it should be of type BinaryAssembly.  That type has a Location property on it that should be what you want.

Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for.

The latest build of this product (v24.1.2) was released 2 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
