I can build a CLR Visual C++ class library in VS 2013 that gets me a dll. But it seems that MATLAB NET.addAssembly givess me an error when I try to load the assembly. Is this not possible or am I doing something wrong?

>> asm = NET.addAssembly('C:\Users\abehbood\Documents\test_core\VS_solution\Release\core.dll')
Message: Could not load file or assembly
'file:///C:\Users\abehbood\Documents\test_core\VS_solution\Release\core.dll' or one of its dependencies. The
module was expected to contain an assembly manifest.
Source: mscorlib

I made sure that in my VS properties, "Embed Manifest" is set to Yes.

'NET.addAssembly' requires assembly entry in the assembly metadata. Perhaps, some thing has gone wrong while creating this metadata.
Try the following 1) Start the Ildasm.exe ( MSIL Disassembler ). To run the tool, use the Developer Command Prompt (or the Visual Studio Command Prompt in Windows 7). 2) Load the file you wish to test. 3) If ILDASM reports that the file is not a portable executable (PE) file, then it is not an assembly.
Let me know what happens.
