Is there a way to reference DLLs dynamically in console applications?

I want to change my mysql.data [i.e mysql connector] reference dynamically in console applications.As we have many applications eachtime we can not rebuild applications with new .net mysql connector.

So pls suggest a way to get rid of this.

Reflection should allow you to achieve this.
A very nice and easy guide here[^].

What is the difference between Solution 1 and Solution 3? Just wondering would you achieve what Surender.m wants? Please see his comments on Solution 1. :)

We can simply load the dll using reflection - so why go for Dependency Injection (for which we will need to use third party support)?

Yes it is achievable by Reflection, I agree. :)
