Global Assembly Cache Folder

Having a brain-blank moment again....I'm following the instructions in Setup.txt and have come to No 7.

Does this mean we should create a folder in the setup project called "Global Assembly Cache" - or is this folder elsewhere? I've done a search and it appears not to be on my PC.

Or are you saying use gacutil.dll to register the assemblies?

Hi Richard.

You can add the 'Global Assembly Cache' folder via the 'Add Special Folder' context menu in Visual Studio. You just need to open the File System editor of the setup project. Then right click on the 'File System on Target Machine' node and you will get the context menu.
The Global Assembly Cache folder is present on any PC if .NET Framework has been installed. Usually it is 'C:\Windows\assembly' folder.
