Gac and applications.....???

P: n/a
Do I need to reg my assemblies with the gac to distribute my application...
My app seems so run fine whether they are registered or not... As long as
they are in the app dir it works fine... What's the rule? What's the
recommendation....? I know in dev I register my strong name assemblies but
for distribution to client machines it doesn't seem to matter if I reg with
gac or not....
Let me know....Thanks in Advance...

It depends if you are going to reuse your assemblies in other applications
then it would be a little bit of a performance enhancement to use the GAC
but you would loose the ability to XCOPY-install your app. Also there is no
need to assign a strong name unless you are using the GAC and want the extra
security provided by the SN
