How to Store DLL's Centally RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have multiple MVC Projects that use a common DLL (containing utility methods).  After adding a reference to utilmethods.dll. Visual Studio is creating copy of the DLL in each project. This is a nightmare to maintain when I make changes to the DLL utilmethods.dll.

    How Can I store my DLL in one place centrally for all projects (MVC Projects & console applications etc).

    Can I use Windows\System32 ?
