How do i export the files.

Since raising this thread have found most of teh DLLs - is there a reason i can't drag-n-drop onto the new server?

First of all :http://www.codeproject.com/KB/dotnet/demystifygac.aspx...
and after all

Nevertheless : I forgot to ask you if your DLL is a .Net assembly ? Or a COM ? Do you want to deploy or just install on one machine manually ?

If yes, you can also drag and drop an assembly with a strong name in Windows Explorer... if shfusion is available. During installation of the .Net Framework, the Assembly Cache Viewer Shell Extension (shfusion.dll) is installed. This component allows the addition of new assemblies into the GAC by simply navigating to the assembly cache
(%systemroot%\Windows\assembly) and then dragging and dropping the component (.dll) file into this folder.

BTW, I don't understand "Since raising this thread have found most of the DLLs"

Now that you know how to register an assembly into the GAC, do you really think that it's possible to simply copy/paste the folder on another server ?
