Do not deploy SharePoint assemblies as ElementFile

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

CheckId SPC062112
TypeName DoNotDeploySharePointAssembliesAsElementFile
Severity CriticalError
Type Feature

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.

To suppress this violation in XML SharePoint code add the following comment right before the XML tag which causes the rule violation. Learn more about SuppressMessage here.
