    Hi,

    I'm working on an add-in for Microsoft Office and use a lot of Telerik components for the custom UI.
    To have all these Telerik controls look and feel like the rest of Office, I apply a theme at runtime, depending on which color scheme the user have set for Office. And on Development machines this works like a charm - change the color of Office and my add-in changes with it.
    For distributing to end-users I want to put the theme assemblys in the GAC, as I have to be sure that these theme assemblies can be found run-time, as they are loaded when needed.
    Putting the theme dll's in the GAC works fine for the Office2010Blue and the Office2010Black themes, but nothing happens when I try to deploy Office2010Silver to the GAC - and not even when using gacutil. I'm using Telerik 2013.1.220.40, VS2012 and .NET 4.5.

    Hope you can help me out here, as the add-in doesn't if it can't find the theme assemblies at run-time.

    Best regards
    Thomas

    Hello Thomas,

    Thank you for writing.

    I do not see a reason why it would not work with the Office2010Silver theme. Can you please let me know of the methods you tried to install the assembly in your GAC, this will let me test them on my end in order to properly investigate the matter. Also you can try with other assemblies so that we can confirm if the issue is related only to the Office2010Silver theme.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    it turned out that the Office2010Silver theme dll I packaged in the msi was a different version than the rest of the files. As soon as I used the right version which matched the rest, it registerede nicely in the GAC.
