I was looking for a way to reinstall all DO4.x's DLLs into GAC on a developer machine, but didn't find any script or feature of the development install to accomplish this. I think it would be nice to have such option in the Install.cmd script.

Background: In my case DO's assemblies became part of a SharePoint WSP solution by a mistake. SharePoint uninstalled them from GAC when retracting the solution. Before I spotted this problem I had fixed the WSP build process to exclude DO's assemblies. However, since they already weren't in GAC I ended up with a corrupted installation without any simple way to fix it unless I know which assemblies to reinstall into GAC.

Naturally Clear.cmd would be needed too. ;)

Do I understand you correctly: you actually need to reinstall old DO4 assemblies to GAC to properly uninstall them?

No, I had an inconsistent environment — part of DO assemblies were uninstalled from GAC by a mistake. So, I'd like to see a script to add all assemblies into GAC again as part of the DO installation.

One Answer:

Launch GAC/GacReinstall.bat file from its installation folder to fix the issue.
