GACUTIL Vs C:\Windows\assembly

GACUTIL /L followed by a DLL name does not list me a DLL
e.g GACUTIL /L myfile
But when I explore to C:\windows\assemblies I see that the DLL is there.

Why is the difference? Am I missing a parameter with the GACUTIL list command?
It is just one particular DLL that i am not able to locate using this cmdline but I am able to get info for other DLLs. Hence it is not a typo or missing cmd line parameter but something more specific to a particular DLL that I am after.
Also, I know the .NET code is working properly since the DLL that I am able to view is there in the GAC explorer.
Please let me know what could be the problem with cmdline GACUTIL. thanks.

the machine were I am looking does not have Visual Studio or the tools installed. Hence not sure which is the correct VS.NET command prompt. However, i tried GACUTIL /l command from the following locations:
C:\Windows\assembly
c:\windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\V2.0.50727

it means in your machine gacutil is not available.  see GACUTIL doesn't come with the .NET Runtime, but with the .NET SDK  so you need to copy that exe in your location
