GAC Util - Best practices

clipped from

You should use Windows Installer to install your application.  Starting with version 2.0, Windows Installer has built-in functionality to install assemblies to the GAC - the MsiAssembly and MsiAssemblyName tables in particular.  You can refer to this MSDN document for an overview of how to add assemblies to an MSI package and this MSDN document for a description of how to add Win32 assemblies to an MSI package.  Therefore you should use this built-in functionality to handle GAC installation and uninstallation for you.
