View Full Version : MSI 2.0 and a GAC file

08-22-2005, 10:01 AM
What ways are there to update a file in the GAC (because of a Hot fix) with clients that have Windows Installer 2.0 installed on their machine/server?

I saw that there is some new functionality in 3.0 (and greater) that allows me to create patches, but if the client doesn't have 3.0 installed how can I patch a file of ours in the GAC?

NOTE: Assume that the client doesn't want to upgrade to Windows Installer 3.0 (or greater) quite yet.

Thanks for any suggestions.
