MapDemo, Dotspatial.Data and GAC

Jan 12, 2011 at 5:53 PM

I compiled DotSpatial.Data successfully.  I compiled MapDemo successfully as well.

 

When I try installing mapdemo the system returns a message that DotSpatial.Data needs to be in the GAC.

 

When I run gacutil /i DotSpatial.Data the system returns an unknown error. 

 

I'm running on Windows 7.  I have the .Net 4 Framework installed.  The gacutil I'm using is from the Microsoft SDK v7.0.

 

Any ideas what I'm missing?

 

Thanks,

All,

 

I was able to resolve this.  The mistake I made was in using the wrong gacutil.exe

 

Initially I used the one under C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\bin

 

which failed giving me an unknown error.

 

When I used the one under C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\bin\NETFX 4.0 Tools

 

the dll was successfully added to the gac.

 

Thanks,

Alan
