You don't copy the file directly - but use the assembly linker (al.exe)
to create an assembly based on the configuration file:

al /link:policy-file.config /out:policy.1.0.YourAssembly.dll /keyfile:YourAssemblyKey.snk

then you can just gacutil on the generated assembly:

	gacutil -i policy.1.0.YourAssembly.dll
