Installing to GAC using .NET Installer

I am using .NET 2.0 and VS 2005.

I need to put the output of the project into the GAC. Everything I read says that the Windows Installer is the correct way to put the file into the GAC. However nothing says how to do it. Is it obvious and I am just missing a step somewhere?

I have a strong name, it is in the assemblyinfo file.

Thank you in advance

when you create your setup project
in there on the folder explorer
right click on the root and navigate to an option Special Folders and you should see "Global Assembly Cache"
add that to the view and you can then select the destination folder for your output to be in that folder (which would be GAC)

so when you install or uninstall it will add/remove it from GAC the right way instead of doign it via a custom action.

Also GACUTIL.EXE is not redistributable
