This must be documented _somewhere_ but I can't find it...

I've got a strongly named assembly. I compile it, and then c:> gacutil /uf
I exected my assembly to show up in the .Net tab of the "Add Reference"
dialog box from
I've checked to see that the assem is really there, and that I can reference
it during design and load it during runtime. But it doesn't show up in the
dialog box, I've got to Browse for it.

How do I get it in there?

Thanks for your help.

1. Asssemblies Do Not Appear In "Add Reference" Dialog

I had to re-build my PC recently and have discovered that my VS 2003
installation appears corrupted.  None of the .NET Framework assemblies
appear in the "Add Reference" dialog.  For example, if I create a new Smart
Device application, the base form will not appear in the designer because
none of the default references are included in the project.  When I go to
add them, the do not appear in the dialog (forcing me to browse for them).

Is there a registry setting or other configuration option I need to
