Soliciting feedback on two features

P: n/a
I am collecting data for two features that shipped with the CLR in v1.0 and
v1.1. If you use and/or depend on these features, I would appreciate hearing
from you with a brief description of how you use these features.

1) .NET Application Restore tool

A few sources, including Jeffrey Richter's "Applied Microsoft .NET Framework
Programming" book, describe a feature called the "app restore tool", which
can be accessed via the .NET configuration tool. There is logging
information recorded for each managed application that runs, which can be
used by this tool to try to analyze any binding policy (e.g. binding
redirect) changes that affected the application, and suggest ways to get
your application back to an older state.

2) CacheLocation

This is a relatively obscure feature that allows relocation of the GAC via a
registry key setting. Support for this feature is limited, and there are a
variety of known problems when this feature is actually used.

Any comments you have would be apprecaited. Thanks.

2) CacheLocation

Seems to be a required feature and I have seen this asked about a number of
times in the newsgroups. While I have never used it, I can see many a time
when I will when a server decides to need rebuild, and needs the GAC
relocating.
