These are the files composing the assembly. All those files must be present in the same installation folder. So, you cannot add files in directory different than the one containing the first file. If the assembly manifest is an external file, use thebutton to indicate it. The files belonging to an assembly will all share the same component.
You can install the assembly either as private install connected to one of the application's files or into the Global Assembly Cache.
If you need to install the same assembly in both locations (in a folder on the disk and in the GAC), you can add the assembly file twice in the "Files and Folders" page (in two different folders). One file will be set for private installation and the other will be set for installation into the GAC.
Both .NET and Win32 assemblies are supported.

Also, precompiling assemblies can improve the startup time for some applications. Use the .NET Native Image Dialog.link to customize the precompile options in the
