Register in the Registry ?

.Net assemblies don't need to register. They need to be placed in the GAC (but they need to be strongly typed) or you can place them into the same folder as the application that is using it.

Hi minirachelme,
have a look on MSDN here, there are two way you can go about this....

Manually Registering an Assembly

to manually register your assembly you will need to use the .NET Services Installation Tool (Regsvcs.exe) you can find out more information about it here

Dynamically Registering an Assembly
