When I install an app using Wise for Windows Installer which creates an MSI, should I install the syncfusion dll''s in the GAC or the application folder. I will be using syncfusion grids in at least 3 apps. Rick Lancaster

I think it just depends. :) If you put them in the GAC, then all three apps can share a single set of Syncfusion.DLLs. This can be an advantage for diskspace resources and enforcing all apps to use a single version. But if you want to use different versions or custom Syncfusion builds for some of the apps, then not using the GAC is an advantage.
