Console exe referring to GAC DLL on SharePoint 2010


I am writing a console application that will do one time migration of some data. Now I have an existing SharePoint solution which  has the logic to do the migration.

However i need to tweak it a little for the existing documents so I created a console app and set the reference to existing solution with some minor changes.

When I try to run the console app it always give error that the dll is not updated in GAC. Although i have set the reference to the local copy of it.

Do I need to update it on GAC as well or is there a workaround for this.

Problem is that if I update it in GAC it will break the current flow.

Unless you use the <codeBase> element in your application config file probing will start and the assembly resolver will look in the GAC:
