Where is GacUtil in Windows Server 2008 & VS2008

Posted by Clayton James on November 27, 2008

I regulary run Post Build events in Visual Studio on my development machines to install assemblies into the GAC immediatley after a successful build. This save me a lot of time.

However, have been working with Windows Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 and couldn’t find the GacUtil.exe in the usual spots on the file system … e.g C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\SDK.

I finally found the location and it has been moved to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin

So I can know put in my Post Build events like this:
“C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin\gacutil.exe” -u “$(TargetName)”
“C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin\gacutil.exe” -i “$(TargetPath)”
