The LEADTOOLS MediaFoundation for .NET SDK is built as a custom interop assembly, using LEADTOOLS MediaFoundation COM objects to implement multimedia features. With this release, a manifest-driven activation context is now used to instantiate these multimedia COM objects. Traditional COM registration of these objects in your deployed applications is no longer required when using the Leadtools.MediaFoundation assembly.
Note that all other LEADTOOLS Media Foundation transforms and codecs still need to be registered using regsvr32. For full details on the LEADTOOLS Media Foundation for .NET changes to the required redistributable files, see Files To Be Included With Your Application.
