Thank you for writing.
I do not recommend installing assemblies into the GAC
if you are not planning to share the same DLL
s to a different application. It is sufficient to use the default option to copy them in the application folder.
Still, there is a possibility to add assemblies to the GAC during the installation process. For example, you could use the Setup Project
option in Visual Studio.
Please follow the steps provided below :
- Create a Setup Project (under the Setup and Deployment Project Templates)
- Open the File System Editor by navigating to the "View/Editor/File System" menu item.
- Right-click in File System Editor window and select the "Add Special Folder/Global Assembly Cache Folder" menu item to add the GAC folder to the list.
- Right click at the folder and choose "Add/File..." to add assembly.
I hope this was helpful. Do not hesitate to contact me again if you need future assistance.
