    Go to MSDN and look up the System.Configuration.Installer namespace.

    Unhappy

    rags_to_riches, thanks for your reply..
    I have tried to use System.Configuration.Installer namespace like your recomends.
    however, I don't found out solution of this problem yet.
    Code:
    try
    {
    	string regasmPath = System.Runtime.InteropServices.RuntimeEnvironment.GetRuntimeDirectory() + "regasm.exe";
    
    	string[] commandLineOptions = new string[2] { "/codebase", @"c:\my.dll"  };
    
    	AssemblyInstaller myAssemblyInstaller = new
    				AssemblyInstaller(regasmPath, commandLineOptions);
    
    	myAssemblyInstaller.UseNewContext = false;
    
    	myAssemblyInstaller.Install(null);
    
    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
    	System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(ex.Message);
    }
    I wonder why this code not working without exception..

    Do I really get included in "all" when all I did is point out that some person's "guess" was simply correct? I should hope not.
