You can install the .dll file by using the Gacutil tool or by dragging the .dll file to the appropriate folder. If you use the Gacutil tool, you can use a command that resembles the following:

gacutil -I "[DriveLetter]:\[PathWhereDllIsLocated]\ChilkatDotNet[x].dll"

To drag the file, open two instances of Windows Explorer. In one instance, find the location of the .dll file output for your console project. In the other instance, find c:\[SystemRoot]\Assembly. Then, drag your .dll file to the Assembly folder. (Such as C:\Windows\assembly)

Note: The Global Assembly Cache (GAC), when viewed using Explorer, has its view rendered in a special manner by the OS shell - you see all the assemblies, their strong name details, processor architecture and other details.
