Global Assembly Cache Utility
January 16, 2006

I’ve recently gotten back into developing with Sharepoint 2003 and needed to install several assemblies into the GAC (Global Assembly Cache) on my Windows XP Pro machine. I realized it was a pain to open the Visual Studio.NET command prompt and then type the gacutil.exe on the command line. I figured there might be a quick utility to do this… After several minutes of “Googling” (usually my patience level), I found no such utility.

However, I did find a nice little workaround! The text below allows you to add a line to the Windows registry so you can right-click and add an assembly to the GAC easily.

The text for the key is below; simply copy/paste it into notepad and save it as a registry file (.reg). Then double click the file to add it to the registry.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\shell\gacutil\command]

@=”c:\\windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v1.1.4322\\gacutil.exe /i \”%1\””

NuSoft Christmas Party
December 19, 2005

I just returned home from a weekend in Michigan. I attended NuSoft’s Christmas party at Roosevelt’s Billard’s in Farmington Hills, MI. The party turned out to be great with lots of drinks, food, and conversation. I was able to meet lots of Nusoft employees from Grand Rapids, MI that I had only heard of in passing.

In addition to the six drink tickets Jennifer and I received, we were able to score another six from a non-drinking couple. Needless to say, after a few beers, martinis, and some hot wings, I was good to go. Jennifer promised to keep me from embarrasing myself too bad.

The following is one of many Bud Light moments 🙂
