    Our VB.NET solutions are deployed with the Utility "NetInstall". The project deliverables are installed in c:\program files\....., and the FarPoint DLLs should be installed in the GAC.

    The installation in GAC (with gacutil) worked with FarPoint 1.0, but it doesn't work anymore with FarPoint 2.5. Gacutil needs a very big runtime which ist not deployed on the local computers. Is there another possibility for installation in GAC?

    You do not have to install the FarPoint assemblies into the GAC. You could keep the assemblies local to the project folder. However, if you want to install to the GAC, you would need to use Gacutil or use .NET code by calling the GacInstall function in the Publish class.
