GAC DLL Question RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have created a DLL for my data access layer which uses the Data components of the Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary. I want to install my custom DAL in the GAC so all my applications can use it. When I deploy the DLLL to the GAC and attempt to run my application, I receive an error message that my GAC DLL could not find the referenced Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary DLLs. 

    My question is - when you put a custom DLL in the GAC, do all other 'private' DLLS - i.e. DLLs not in the GAC - need to be added to and referenced from the GAC within my custom DLL in order for it to work?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.
