I developed a Windows Control Library in C#. I compiled it to dll. I can add the component manually to the toolbox in VS .NET IDE. My question is :

Is it possible to automate the process by mean of writing some installation script ?

Thanks.

If you sign you component and have it install to the GAC it will be available for people to install, but if you don't want to sign it and put it in the GAC you do this.

add a registry key to the following in your install
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\AssemblyFolders\Joeisanerd .NET Controls

and add a default value of "[ProgramFilesFolder]Joeisanerd\VS .NET Controls"

Replace the Joeisanerd .NET Controls with your own group name
The default value specified above needs to point to the directory where your component gets installed to.

After install the user can add you component to the toolbox via the Add/Remove buttons.
