I am trying to create an assembly on my SQL Server 2005 server. Here is what I am using:

    FROM 'path\to\my\file.dll'

I am getting this error as ouput:

Msg 0, Level 11, State 0, Line 0
A severe error occurred on the current command.  The results, if any, should be discarded.
Msg 0, Level 20, State 0, Line 0
A severe error occurred on the current command.  The results, if any, should be discarded.

When I look at my error logs I find the following in the stack trace:


I've been Googling around and the only solution I have seen to this is to change the database owner, which is not an option for me. I'm thinking that I need to have some sort of permissions set for my user but I can't find exactly what I need.

Could anyone give me some advice on how to handle this? It would be very much appreciated.


Edit The version of SQL Server:

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - 9.00.5057.00 (X64)

What exactly does your assembly do? Have you tried using PERMISSION_SET = UNSAFE? –  Thomas Stringer Jul 31 '12 at 14:21
And what is the build of SQL Server (SELECT @@VERSION;)? Most access violations are bugs, and most get fixed. It's quite possible that refreshing your installation will magically fix this... –  Aaron Bertrand Jul 31 '12 at 15:07
@Shark the assembly defines a function that gets a web resource by URL and converts it to a base64 string. I first tried to deploy this using Visual Studio 2010 but got the error shown above. What I posted is my attempt at creating the assembly manually, and I again am getting this error. –  TheMethod Jul 31 '12 at 15:10
@ Aaron Bertrand, I edited the post to include version. –  TheMethod Jul 31 '12 at 15:11
The latest public hotfix available is 9.00.5296 (support.microsoft.com/kb/2615425). It might be worth a shot on a test server to see if the fix is in there somewhere (it may not be a public bug/fix). –  Aaron Bertrand Jul 31 '12 at 15:33
