Data and Validation Blocks don't work from the GAC
<p>If Entlib 5 is installed in the GAC, then the Data and Validation blocks don't properly read their configuration sections. This results in "cannot Resolve Database" style errors. It works if you copy these assemblies
local.</p> <p> </p> <p>Why: Under the hood the type registration providers are loaded by name, and the name is not fully assembly qualified. Without the full name, these assemblies cannot be located in the GAC.</p>
