Assembliy access in VS.NET

In Visual Studio.NET, does anybody knows how to get your assemblies to show up in the "Add reference" screen without having to click on  browse and manually find your assembly ?

I have two librairies that I have developed for the plant and I would prefer it to show up in the main window. Just like we could do with COM object previously.

I believe that you need to add your assemblies to the GAC (Global Assembly Cache) to have them show up automagically ;-)

If my mind serves me right - look at the GacUtil.exe utility.

Open Mouth, Insert Foot. 

Looks like putting it into the GAC won't help.  Duncan's link cleared that up real quick. 

Sorry for the misinformation.

Great I can even create my own folder and add it to the list.
