Is there a Progress.ssl.dll dependency that is used by the .net openclient ( in 11.7)?

  • We use local copies of the strongnamed-signed openclient assemblies on our build server so the .Net compiler can reference them as necessary.

    I have questions about Progress.ssl.dll.

    We are upgrading (11.3 to 11.7) and I noticed that we still have a Progress.ssl.dll lying around.  Is this needed anymore?  I cannot find it in the dotnet directory within the 11.7 installation (DLC).  I'm uncertain, but leaning towards the opinion that I can blow it away.  Here are my arguments FOR blowing it away and against:

    FOR removal:

    AGAINST removal:

    It doesn't seem like this is the type of question that should be answered by flipping a coin.  But maybe we can answer it with the democratic process.  Can someone please give me the tie-breaking vote, so I know whether to get rid of the dll or keep it around?

    Thanks, David

  • Sorry, that KB article is  P159240. But my link excluded the "0" on the end - for some reason.

  • David,
     
    It isn’t needed for 11.7 generated .NET proxies.  It was unmanaged code for handling SSL that has been converted over to managed code located in Progress.o4glrt.dll.

  • Thanks for confirming that again Brian.

    Those docs should be fixed.  (It probably isn't even necessary to include a list of assembly names on that web page, since it is enough that *proxygen* knows where to get its assemblies from and passes them along to us).

    I will blow away that assembly and see what happens.
