FileHelpers.dll are referenced within 2 class libraryies (Dto and Services) in my solution
My webapp (asp.net mvc) is on IIS7 (Full Trust) Windows 7 PRO 64 and I sometimes get this exception when starting my app from VS2008: (to get rid of it I delete the FileHelpers.dll from bin, run, close browser, rebuild the solution and run again )

Could it be the running order of the dependencies? Another option for your dev machine is to drop the dll into the GAC instead of having it local. That ensures that it runs as full trust.

My best guess for the trust error since you're running in full trust is that something in one of the dlls or in code is dropped down to partial trust at some point.

how do you drop the dll in the GAC ?, they are in my bin folder –  Omu Dec 12 '09 at 18:41
    
The dll has to be signed for it to work in the GAC but most 3rd party DLLs are. Just drag and drop into c:\windows\assembly. You'll need to reference it in your project too (VS can do it with add references) –  Scott Forsyth - MVP Dec 13 '09 at 1:12
