I wanted to consume a few dll’s and wanted them to be deployed to GAC and was thinking if Visual Studio 2010 has this feature for deploying external dll’s from the same Visual Studio SharePoint project.
Go to Package explorer and double click on the package
Click on the Advanced Tab on the bottom of the package
Now click on Add button and out of the 2 options—> select “Add from Existing Assembly”
Kool this has options to add to GAC/Webapplication and rest VS 2010 takes care of it…
