Gacutil.exe and .NET Framework 4.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently installed the .NET Framework 4.0 beta and noticed that Gacutil is not installed with the product.  I was wondering if Gacutil will be added to the framework prior to the full release or will it be excluded from the .Net Framework 4.0?

  • It's considered a devloper tool, rather than part of the .NET runtime, so look for it as part VS 2010 and the SDK.

  • You can use your fusion.dll based tools (if you have ones) to add 4.0 assemblies to .gac - just compile them under Framework 4.0. You can find sample of such tool here: http://geekswithblogs.net/dbose/archive/2008/11/07/recreate-gacutil---part-2.aspx or searching the google with "fusion.dll" and "gacutil" keywords. All you need is to rebuild NET-2.0 project under .NET 4.0.

  • If VS2010 is installed, look at: %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\bin\NETFX 4.0 Tools\
