Need a DLL but you don’t know the exact location? Instead of searching through all your folders, just extract it from the Global Assembly Cache(GAC).
- Open a command prompt(as an administrator)
- run > cmd
- Navigate to assembly and gac folder
- cd windows\assembly\gac
- Navigate further down to the desired assembly >
- dir <assembly name initials>
- cd <assembly name>
- Keep on doing this until you find the required .dll file
- Then copy it
- copy <assembly dll> C:\temp\
Simple and effective!
