You "share" a .NET assembly by placing it in the GAC. I have never done it so I can't suggest any more than that. I have heard that unless you really really need to, you should avoid doing so. I have done a lot of .NET development and have not encountered a compelling need to utilize the GAC.

planioe is right, you can only use the GAC.

I have used the GAC extensively, as I have had to integrate assemblies with BizTalk. The GAC allows versioning, digital signed components and a central location for a program to look for an asembly.

Why does it need to be in the system32? By default, the .NET Framework does the following:

- Current directory
- Parent directory
- GAC
- Path environment variables

If it can't find it in any of these, it will error.

Hope this helps,

Dominic
