How to include inherited DLLs in sub-application
This is a combination IIS and .NET question.
We have an IIS site setup for off the shelf software which runs our intranet.
Within that IIS site we've added a "Widgets" application folder which we use to store custom apps we then embed in our intranet.
Applications in the Widgets folder error unless the majority of dll's from the parent bin folder are copied into each apps bin folder. To resolve this we copy the parent DLL's into each of the Widget app bin folder which doesn't seem like an efficient way to do this. Is there a way through .NET coding or IIS to get around having to duplicate all of these dll's? Its going to be a pain if our vendor changes all the top level dll's and we have to copy them all each time.
Sorry if I didn't write this clearly, I'm not 100% clear on the right terminology to use. Hopefully the screenshot attached will help clarify how we have things setup in IIS.

Working at Technocrab as designer and developer the best solution to this is -
Put DLL files in bin folder.
if to use any class from DLL better to use "particular namespace" of that class.
