Install Assembly in Old GAC


New release  - new problems.
New release + old application -  more problems !! :(

New GAC is in world "c:\windows\" but does it mean business no longer need updated version of 3.5 assemblies and eventually developer.

 There may be multiple reasons to access to old GAC, but the visual studio (12 onwards) the command prompt takes to new GAC so how to install in old GAC.

Our old sweet GACutil.exe is still there but hidden at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\Bin" use this and enjoy!!

SharePoint 2013 - Edit Item form error - Could not load XSL file. The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)


I have seen my colleagues struggling from this error and now I was also in same trap :(. The very common solution to this problem over internet is "Enabling publishing feature at site collection level" but in my case this does not work.
It is actually the error which is being thrown at UI. could not load xls file. so what's the solution??

The solution is right there - check your style library, it should have ItemStyle.xls  at your style library, if not there, download from any fresh sitecollection and upload , it should work -

Understanding .cmp , export and import in Sharepoint 2013


I was doing some R&D to understand export functionality , found a very good blog -

Interestingly the core concept still holds true!!
ZipFile which comes with .net Framework 4.5 can not read this .cmp format :( .

their specification is way different. So still use Microsoft.Deployment.Compression.dll.
