You cannot add .NET dlls into COM+, the .NET framework is a REPLACEMENT for COM.

You put your .NET dll's in the GAC (Global Assembly Cache) using GacUtil.exe

I'm vague on the details cos I've never had need to do it, because you don;t HAVE to put your .NET dll's in the GAC to use them, if they're in the same directory as the project that references them the CLR can find and load it.

oic.....thanks anyway


You can generate wrapper COM objects for your .Net classes just like you can import COM objects with wrapper .Net classes (google it or look for Interop on MSDN) but you have to have .Net Framework installed on the machines you deploy the COM wrapper dll.
