View GAC assemblies in Windows Explorer

Follow below steps to enable windows explorer view for GAC assemblies:

  1. Disable the namespace extension. To do that rename the Shfusion.dll to Shfusion_Old.dll which is located in the %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\vx.x.xxxx folder (e.g. v2.0.50727)
  2. Open %windir%\assembly folder. This time you will get the windows explorer view.
  3. Rename the Shfusion_Old.dll to Shfusion.dll to enable the namespace extension. Now open %windir%\assembly you will get the standard view.

Cheers !!!
