SPC060204: Do not deploy SharePoint assemblies

In some case Visual Studio or WSPBuilder include SharePoint assemblies into the package (e.g. Microsoft.Search.dll). This is not allowed.

TypeName: DoNotDeploySharePointAssemblies
CheckId: SPC060204
Severity: CriticalError
Type: AssemblyFileReference

Remove the SharePoint assembly from the solution package.


The rule only checks the name of each assembly (starts the name with 'Microsoft.SharePoint' or 'Microsoft.Office'). It does not compare the assembly version or size. Because of this also non-Microsoft assemblies which start with 'Microsoft.SharePoint' will be detected as errors.
