The technical answer to this question is:-

an assembly is a programme that has no Main() function in it,assemblies can be of two types:

1)static:- they are intended to be used by the appliction they are developed withand are located in the same directory where the application is stored

2)shared:- they can be used by any number of application

The main diffrence lies in:1) Location & Visibility


The shared assembly has a strong name(Versioning or Token key) where as in case of static assembly there is no versioning constraints imposed on it by the CLR
