On hind-sight it is not surprising, but still. I found that "ass = Assembly.LoadWithPartialName ("mono-webkit");"
insists that I provide a disk file in MONO_PATH, but the disk file gets ignored and used it own in-memory copy within a mkbundle bundle.
Of course it is partly my own fault that the two versions differ. I made it that way to take advantage of the dependency scanning, found that it does not work as planned so started making changes.
There are two surprises:
- although I included a "mono-webkit.dll" with the mkbundle, the runtime still insists that it needs a disk file.
- and the disk file does not get used, instead the runtime uses the in-memory copy of the dll. (when the two differ).
I know Assembly.LoadWithPartialName is obsolete for exactly this sort of inconsistent behavior, but it is still confusing.
Mono.WebBrowser should be fixed to load things properly.
Did you try to compile it yourself and change it to use a non-deprecated Load function?
No, I did not try to modify the code. What would be a non-deprecated alternative?
