After reading the article
http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/05/04/RegFreeCOM/ about referencing a COM object without having to register it, I was excited about trying it in my ASP.NET project because I cannot register things at the ISP.
I can't figure out how to do it.
I use VS2005, and have a 'Web Site' type project which uses the local IIS (so that I can run classic asp pages). So far so good, but there is no 'References' folder. So I add my VB project (xxx.dll) reference, but it does not show up in solution explorer.
So I can't right click on the reference and change the isolated property to 'true' in order to get a manifest that will self-register the COM objects.
I found that the references are listed as part of the 'properties' of my project, but that does no have the 'isolated' property, and I can't figure where it is stored anyway... there is no .sln file.
So, how can I make this reference 'isolated' as required for Reg-free COM?
