Versioning side-by-side in SharePoint

Mar 9, 2009 at 1:41 PM

Could you give guidance on how to use assembly versioning in a side-by-side manner in SharePoint ?

We have problems with WSP solution with the same name (version 1 and version 2), same problem with the feature folder.

In order to run the same feature - but different versions.  Make sure you have the each feature ID unique.

Does this help?

To have side-by-side versions, we have a problem if we just change the ID because SharePoint works with name like the WSP Solution name, the Feature folder name.

It seems that side-by-side versions in SharePoint is not possible, am I correct ?

You can only package one version of an assembly in a WSP. If you want to use two different versions of an assembly side by side, you should package the second version in a new different wsp, with a different feature.
