Every Assembly you create contains one or more program files and a Manifest. There are two types program files : Process Assemblies (EXE) and Library Assemblies (DLL). Each Assembly can have only one entry point (that is, DllMain, WinMain, or Main). We can create two types of Assembly, private Assembly and shared Assembly . A private Assembly is used only by a single application, and usually it is stored in that application's install directory. A shared Assembly is one that can be referenced by more than one application. If multiple applications need to access an Assembly, we should add the Assembly to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC)
