Global Assembly Cache

I'm new to .net. I've essentially inherited a project from a collegue who
left for greener pastures.

I'm trying to install an assembly into the Global Assembly Cache and it
produces the "Error 1304: Error writing to file: <my dll name>. Verify that
you have access to that directory"

Could someone point me in the direction I should start looking?

Thanks.

How are you trying to install? Are you trying to copy or write directly into the GAC? you cant do that...

Thanks for your response.

I'm using the Wise Installer. My latest research points me to the fact that
since I'm using Visual Studio 2005, I need to deliver the .net Framework 2.0
redistributables.

That's true, isn't it?

Yes, if the user does not already have it you will need to install 2.0 framework.
