Installing assembly on remote machine

Is it possible to install an assembly on a remote machine's GAC? I don't see

hi,

Yes its possible to istalled an assembly to a remote machine but only with
Windows Installer 2.0.
CacUtil is used only during developement purpose but not for deployement.

Fro deploying an assembly on the remote machine you need to build an msi
project that will first detect if the correct framework is installed and then
instlled your aseembly.

..Net framework runtime dotnetfx.exe can be installed separatly

I don't use Windows Installer in this particular case. Is there a way of
installing remotely without Windows Installer?

No its the only way to deploy an assembly in the gac for runtime.
On solution of course would be also to install all your developement
environemtn on the remote machine but then you are not deploying.

Thanks for the feedback.

Its a shame that remote deployment is not supported. Is it possible to
harness the same APIs that Windows Installer uses to install remotely?
