GAC & seeing the assembly...

P: n/a
Is it true that even if an assembly is added to the GAC, it won't show up on
the standard .NET assembly reference list?

If so, how can you get a global assembly to show up automatically in the
..NET references list?

Hi Scott,

That's correct. Take a look at the KB article to see how you can make it
appear: http://support.microsoft.com/default...B;EN-US;306149.

Bottom line: you can add an entry in the Registry. The entry points to the
location of the assemblies you want to appear in the list.

Hope this helps,

bliz
