A fork of NativeLibraryLoader

  • Improved Linux and BSD support. Works for .Net 4.0 and .Net Standard 2.0
  • Also includes a console app to upgrade in InteropDotNet cs file to NativeLibraryLoader notation
  • Supports side-by-side use of 2 different versions of the same DLL

To use: I recommend using the IronNativeLibraryFactory.CreateCrossPlatformNative method to generate a NativeLibrary

  • XMLDocs Intellisense explains usage
  • Creates a NativeLibrary instance that works on Windows, Linux and Mac.
  • Supports net40, netstandard >= 2.0, netcore >= 2.0 and mono without additional configuration.
  • On Linux and mac will automatically search package managers (apt-get, yum, homebrew...) and system environment paths (LD_LIBRARY_PATH, DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH, PATH...) to find binaries
  • On Windows will automatically load MSVC runtime if those binaries are present in the path specified in CreateCrossPlatformNative which contains your DLLs. We can copy these from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\VC\Redist\MSVC\14.24.28127\x64 and x86 respectively
  • On older Windows OSs such as Server 2012, MSVC must always be manually installed because the OS does not have all the prerequisites for the Resits approach above. A System.FileLoadException will be thrown with bit architecture-aware instructions on how to install MSVC on that OS.
  • Will automatically add x64 or x86 to binary paths if those folders are present and contain files
NativeLibrary Lept = IronNativeLibraryFactory.CreateCrossPlatformNative(new[] { "leptonica-1.78.0.dll", "", "", "liblept.5.dylib", "liblept.dylib" }, true, new[] { Path.GetFullPath("MyBinaryPath") });

Files Deployed Alongside:

// the rest are for MSVC

MyBinaryPath/x86/ ... same file names for x86

NOTE: For Linux can also be deployed to MyBinaryPath/x64/ but this is not smart because it contains so many OS-specific dependencies in its build. Instead, install with apt-get or homebrew. This works without any configuration.
