Automated deployment / to RegAsm during install or not?

Excellent, that made it clear for me now. One of the main reasons we picked this library was from the active support we saw on this forum. Much appreciated.

No, there is no need to do RegAsm if your program is in .NET.

QuickOPC-COM denotes the usage of QuickOPC from COM-based tools, *not* the kind of OPC specifications. So, you would be using QuickOPC-COM if your program was, say, in VB6, Delphi, VBScript, VBA, PHP, or so.

Best regards

I have reviewed the following two pages in the user guide along with a few other posts related to RegAsm:
My application is targeting .NET v4.7.2, using the QuickOPC nuget package v5.59.0-rev23 (I do realize this is a prerelease), and will be using the EasyDAClient for subscribing to items on both the same machine and to remote machines with OPC servers. This is the part highlighted below in the docs that are not quite clear to me yet mainly due to the mention of "QuickOPC-COM":

My application will be using the following three assemblies:
  • OpcLabs.BaseLib.dll
  • OpcLabs.EasyOpcClassic.dll
  • App_Web_OpcLabs.EasyOpcClassicRaw.x86.dll

It is still a bit unclear to me whether I must use RegAsm to register the top two assemblies in bold above during install of my application since my app is .NET based and not directly COM based; I'm getting tripped up by the "QuickOPC-COM" mention in the documentation. I understand that my app will be using both COM and DCOM to communicate but my app is .NET based. Do I still need to use RegAsm? What do I need to educate myself on further?
