In SharePoint 2013, is it possible for a timer job to access a third party DLL that has been deployed to the bin folder instead of the GAC?
I have modified the package so that when the wsp is deployed, my third party DLL is copied to the bin folder associated with the Central Admin. When the timer job runs, it complains that it cannot find the file. I have restarted the SharePoint Timer service, but that did not help.
I can deploy to the GAC if necessary, but my client would prefer that I don't.
