Custom web application and bin folder... Yes, but...

As you can see on the Best Practice of the CRM SDK (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd548493.aspx), since rollup 2, you can put your custom assembly to your own web application bin folder instead of using the bin folder of the CRM web application.

Since a while, I didn't understand why this practice seemed to work for everybody except me...

The answer is simple: The assembly name can't contain any dot if you want it to work... It is a known bug by Microsoft.

As I was used to name my assemblies like .Crm.Web, it couldn't work...

I hope this will help some of you, guys!

I found that out the hard way as well. However when I was working with MS on the issue, they did not admit to it being an issue. They seemed completely caught off guard by the whole thing!

In fact, I get this response from a technical consultant from MS, not the support.

But the guy told me it will be corrected... we don't know yat when...
