We like your product a lot and use it in several applications which are embedded in our Electronic Health System. We are having some issues with the DLL versioning though, because we have some applications using an older version of the EO dlls and some applications using the new version. It is not possible for us to update all of these applications at one time.

Our question is - can you release a version of the EO suite of DLLs that are compiled with the version name (or some other unique identifier) such that we can reference specific versions directly, without this conflict? Given that the licenses are not compatible between your product versions, I'm not sure how else to fix this.

.NET have built-in strong name mechanism to distinguish DLLs with the same file name but with different version number/at different physical locations. So you may want to look into that. We have no plan to include version numbers in our DLLs as first it is not necessary, second it will break many existing customer's application and make it much harder for them to upgrade from one version to another.
