Assemblies  are  th e s malles t  unit s of  versionin g   and   deploymen t  in  the   .NE T   application. Assemblies   are  also  the  building  blocks  for  program s   such as  Web services ,  Window s   services ,  service d   components ,  and   .NE T   remoting applications

Microsoft .Net Assembly is a logical unit of code, that contains code which the Common Language Runtime (CLR) executes. It is the smallest unit of deployment of a .net application and it can be a .dll or an exe . Assembly is really a collection of types and resource information that are built to work together and form a logical unit of functionality. It include both executable application files that you can run directly from Windows without the need for any other programs (.exe files), and libraries (.dll files) for use by other applications.

ssembly is the smallest unit of deployment of a .net application. It can be a dll or an exe.
There are mainly two types to it:

Private Assembly: The dll or exe which is sole property of one application only. It is generally stored in application root folder
Public/Shared assembly: It is a dll which can be used by multiple applications at a time. A shared assembly is stored in GAC i.e Global Assembly Cache.

An assembly is a collection of types and resources that forms a logical unit of functionality.

When you compile an application, the MSIL code created is stored in an assembly .
Assemblies include both executable application files that you can run directly from Windows without the need for any other programs (these have a .exe file extension), and libraries (which have a .dll extension) for use by other applications.

There are two kind of assemblies in .NET;
private

shared


Private assemblies are simple and copied with each calling assemblies in the calling assemblies folder.

Shared assemblies (also called strong named assemblies) are copied to a single location (usually the Global assembly cache). For all calling assemblies within the same application, the same copy of the shared assembly is used from its original location. Hence, shared assemblies are not copied in the private folders of each calling assembly. Each shared assembly has a four part name including its face name, version, public key token and culture information. The public key token and version information makes it almost impossible for two different assemblies with the same name or for two similar assemblies with different version to mix with each other.

In the Microsoft .NET framework, an assembly is a partially compiled code library for use in deployment, versioning and security. There are two types: process assemblies (EXE) and library assemblies (DLL). ... An assembly is a runtime unit consisting of types and other resources.
