By the way, although I don't generally use this since I have control over
machines that will use .NET components, there is an alternative to
installing the assembly in the GAC, and it's probably better for your
situation. You can register the component with a codebase path by using
regasm's /codebase switch. This tells applications precisely where to find
the assembly without reverting to app directory search or using the GAC.
This is a little less invasive and much more like traditional COM
