DLL and EXE in DotNet
What is the difference between a DLL and an EXE?
In .NET, an assembly may become a DLL or an EXE. Yet, there is a major underlying difference
between the two.
An EXE is an executable file, that may run on its own. Its independant. Where as a DLL is a
Dynamic Link Library, that
binds to an exe, or another DLL at runtime.
A DLL has an exposed interface, through which members of the assembly may be accessed by
those objects that require
A DLL runs in tandem with the application space in memory, as the application references it.
Whereas an EXE is
independant, and runs as an independant process.
