An assembly is a plug-in function that allows IIS 7 to perform certain actions, such as querying database data or loading the .NET framework to service an ASP.NET application. You can add an assembly to IIS 7 by using the "New Assembly" feature built into the IIS 7 manager. The assembly will run its set code and return its information to IIS 7. If there are any problems, it will return an error page.
