Followings are the steps to install assembly to the GAC.
  • Sign assembly with a strong name using strong name utility, sn.exe.
  • Open the AssemblyInfo file for your project.
  • Use the AssemblyKeyFileAttribute to specify the path to the key file for your project.
  • Build your assembly. Install the assembly to GAC by using gacutil utility e.g. gacutil -i abc.dll
