Need help with Gacutil.exe and regasm.exe

P: n/a


hi,
i want to use gacutil.exe and regasm.exe but i don't want to install
"all" .net framework SDK
do you know if i can install only these 2 methods?
or maybe i can use them without installing SDK?

* need help also if you know how to silently install SDK?

thnx for your help

You should only need the runtime installing for net 1.0 to use these tools.

If your using net 1.1 you will also need to copy the dir with the tools in
from the SDK and run the sdkvars batch file to make tools like gacutil
usable, as they dont shop in the runtime.

I think that:

regasm.exe is distributed with the runtime.

gacutil.exe is distributed with the SDK, but it may have also been
in one (or both) of the .NET Runtime updates.

So regasm.exe should be available on any machine with the .NET runtime
available.

This is not the case for Gacutil.exe for either 1.0 or 1.1 of the
framework. Also, gacutil.exe is not included in the list of
distributable files.

The functionality of regasm.exe is also easily duplicated using classes
in the System.Runtime.InteropServices namespace (specifically the
RegisterAssembly class).

Mattias Sjögren has information on calling the fusion APIs that can be
used to implement GAC functionality here:
