We're always coding in Vb 6.0, now we're begining into the Vb.NET. I'd Like
to Know the differences between COM (in Vb 6.0) registered in COM+ and
Assemblies registered into The GAC. My question is When I must register
Assemblies in COM+, never?.

I think that the COM+ is replaced by de GAC, but I'm not sure. Anybody
anwser my question?.

Thanks for your answer. When I access to assemblies from Remote Computer, I
have register the assemblies in COM+, and  When I share assemblies for
several applications in the same machine I have register the assembly in the
GAC, is correct?...

In my case, I want to access to assembly by pages, then I have
register the assemblies in COM+?. The development infraestructure in my
company is:

1 Development Server.- Web Server and COM+ server in the same Server.
10 Developers.- They coding in, they access to de assemblies
store in Dev Server.
4 Developers.- They coding in, they writes the assemblies.

The assemblies in some times are Transaction Components, other times not.
Where would have register the assemblies?, in GAC, in COM+, depend to if the
component is transaction COM?...

Thank you

Your understand is correct. We can only register the assembly in local GAC
so that ASP.NET application (on same computer) can call them. To access
assembly on remote computer, you can take a look at Remoting in .Net.
