How to use the GAC

..Net Framework v1.1.4322
VS.Net 2003

I have 3 differnet projects for a web application. The first holds the
logic for my controls. The second holds the controls themselves and has a
reference added to it for the first projects dll. And the third is my web
application that references the dlls for both projects before it. Everything
works fine, but now I'm in a situation where I want to use the first and
second project's dlls for a differnet web app to be located on the same
server. From what I've read, I need to add the first two dlls into the GAC,
but nothing I've read gives me a good description of how to do that. Can
anyone please explain to me how to go about this? Thanks!!!!

You can use gacutil.exe to add your assemblies to the GAC.

Hi Tom,

What I would suggest is first deploy both assemblies into GAC....you can do
it in 2 ways....
1. Right click on project whose assembly has to be deployed in GAC and then
click "deploy"
2. Using command line aurguments
gacutil /i AssemblyFileName.dll

Now go to your new project and in solution explorer of project, right click
"Add reference"....

Thats it you are down with it..

any specific questions....do revert
