HOW TO Add a control to the GAC (Global Assembly Cache)
Add to Global Assembly Cache
You can add a control to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) by using the Global Assembly Cache tool (Gacutil.exe). The Global Assembly Cache tool is automatically installed with Visual Studio.
Note: In earlier versions of the .NET Framework, the Shfusion.dll Windows shell extension enabled you to install
assemblies by dragging them in Windows Explorer. Beginning with the .NET Framework version 4, Shfusion.dll is obsolete.
To install the Telerik.Web.UI assembly, open Visual Studio Command Prompt
(Start > Programs > Microsoft Visual Studio <VS
version> > Visual Studio Tools) and run the gacutil.exe tool with
-i parameter (install) and the name
of the control, e.g.
gacutil.exe -i "C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q2 2010\Bin40\Telerik.Web.UI.dll"
Remove from Global Assembly Cache
In order to remove Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX from GAC, please use the following command:
gacutil.exe -u Telerik.Web.UI
More information on how to work with Global Assembly Cache and how to
install controls in different .NET versions, can be found in the MSDN:
