This was on windows/.net runtime, where gacutil is not in the path by 
default (at least it seems so). And
it goes on to display an annoying message box.  Why it would happen is 
sort of irrelevant here as anytime you
do a Process.Start I think it needs to be in a try catch for various 
reasons. I'll leave that other part to you.
