Open assemblies from Global Assembly Cache

JetBrains Rider can open assemblies from Global Assembly Cache (GAC).

Open assemblies from Global Assembly Cache

  1. To switch the Assembly Explorer view, choose Assemblies on the title selector of the Explorer window:

  2. Click Open from GAC ThemedIcon.AssemblyExplorerOpenFromGac.Screen.(Gray).png on the toolbar of the Assembly Explorer view

  3. In the dialog that appears, select the desired assemblies. You can batch-select assembly items and filter out assemblies by typing parts of assembly names in the Search field.

The selected assemblies showing their names and versions are added to the Assembly Explorer view. You can explore them by expanding assembly nodes and their child nodes. Double-click code symbols to decompile and view the corresponding code.
