I am developing an exe to uninstall assemblies specific to a product from GAC.I have used the following code for this in my program in c#:


DepconReportWizard is an assembly with ProcessorArchitecture x86.There are other x86 assemblies that are not getting uninstalled.
When i debug my program, it throws an exception at the piece of code mentioned above as :
System.IO.FileNotfound Exception : <pre lang="C++">{&quot;The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)&quot;:null}
But the assembly does exist in the GAC.Im able to delete all MSIL assemblies except for assemblies that are in GAC_32 folder or x86 assemblies.
I have also tried with the below line

Assembly.Load("DepconReportWizard") and loadfile...etc,

but not able to find the file itself.This is the same in evry machine irrespective of the OS and the system type i.e a 32 bit or 64 bit.
Can you please help me out to find a solution for this, or can u tell me there is mistake in the way I use the methods.


1 solution

The CMD to use would be

gacutil.exe -U 'assembly name'

pop Directory content of the gac folder.

check the files you want to remove then execute

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("gacutil.exe", "-U " + _sFileName);
or something like that :p
