is giving me versioning problems, i uninstalled the control, and reinstalled
but the control when i uninstalled was still on the GAC and i was not able
to remove it, i tried gacutil with different parameters, the Framework
administrator, from the explorer hitting remove on the gac reference to that
control... but everything seems to fail and i find no way to remove it....

Hi Alex,

You may try to delete the Third-party control file in GAC directory
directly by
following the steps below.[ClassLibrary1 for example]
1. Run cmd in run dialog.
2. cd
%systemroot%\assembly\gac\ClassLibrary1\1.0.1322.2 1592__22df95e3b227e638
(My test dll is ClassLibrary1.dll)
3. del ClassLibrary1.dll
4. del __AssemblyInfo__.ini
5. cd..
6. rd 1.0.1322.21592__22df95e3b227e638
7. cd..
8. rd ClassLibrary1
You may perform the steps above to see if the ClassLibray1 has been removed
from the GAC.
