All Assemblies have the same GUID..?

Dec 22, 2014 at 1:42 PM
Having just added HtmlRender and HtmlRenderer.PdfSharp to a project, I started to see the following build error:

“Encountered multiple versions of the assembly with GUID 'ec8a9e7e-9a9d-43c3-aa97-f6f505b1d3ed'. Try pre-importing one of these assemblies.”

It seems to be a problem only if the build process calls tlbimp.exe (my project references a legacy COM object by way of a .tlb type library file).

Is it intentional for all of the HtmlRenderer assemblies to have the same GUID? It seems quite unusual...
