Our Development server is upgrated from windows 2003 to W8R2, and while migrating all our applications to this new server, I am not able to GAC my assemblies successfully. I am a member of Adminstrator group on the server with all reqired permissions.
I tried drag and drop first it didnt work(I tried all options mentied online), then I copied them through commomnd promt successfully. But it does not show up under C:\Windows\Assembly and Application is still missing the references.
Then i found some links saying for 2008 R2 GAC is located at C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Assembly\GAC_32 or GAC_64 for 64bit machine.
so i tried to copy all my required dll's under these folder, i was able to drag and drop with these locations.
but still not able to get any reference in my application.
So , please can anyone tell what is the GAC location for Windows 2008 R2 Server with 64 bit OS, and why it does not show up even when it says succesfully copied. and copied at all Assembly folders.
Thanks in advance.

GAC location for Windows 2008 R2 Server with 64 bit OS: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Assembly\GAC_64.
why it does not show up even when it says succesfully copied.
I'm not sure what's the root of this problem, you could have a try the method below to drag assemly,
1.Open a Command Prompt as Administrator (right click, Run As Administrator).
2.Run "explorer C:\windows\assembly".
3.Open a new explorer window from the window which just opened (Right click -> Open while holding Ctrl). by hopping back up to C:\windows and the navigating to assembly in the second (new) window.
4.Navigate in the first windows back to C:\windows\assembly.
5.Drag and drop between the two windows.
You could check other way to install assembly into GAC on Windows server 2008
hope it helpful to you,
