Hi All,

In my current .Net Application, I need to resolve/clarify few aspects, on .Net Dll's

1) Is .Net Dll's needs to be registered ? If yes, under what circumstances, and how would one effect the registration part of the .Net using Regsvr32.exe "path name/xyzcomInproc.dll" @ command prompt.,

I need to know the steps w.r.t register the .NetDll in the solution.

2)I require clarification on usage of GACUtils.exe tool does this tool depend on the Version of .Net Framework installed to extract the modules.

i) .Net Framework 1.1v, 2.0v, 2.5v, 3.0v ,3.5v the location of GACUtils (C:\Windows\Assemblies)

ii) for .Net Framework 4.0 v and above - the location is C:\WindowsNT\Microsoft.Net\Assemblies).
Using .Net Reflector tool, I was able to narrow down on dll's belonging to .Net Assemblies.,

But, I need to overcome few obstacles, w.r.t Registration of .Net Dll's in particular and the Infrastructure of the system it is dependent.


VS 2008 IDE, Windows 7 O/S,

Any assistance in resolving the above queries are much appreciable.

With Regards,

1 Depends on the DLL. Regular DLLs do not need to be registered. Only COM DLLs with RegAsm.exe.
2. Probably.
i Not a question
ii Not a question.
