Build, Deployment, and Configuration Tools (.NET Framework)
The tools provided in this section make it easier for you to build and deploy your .NET Framework applications. You can use these tools to generate portable executable (PE) and Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) files, view and manipulate the global assembly cache, manage application and deployment manifests, and handle isolated stores and resource files.
These tools are automatically installed with Visual Studio and with the Windows SDK. The best way to run these tools is by using the Visual Studio or Windows SDK Command Prompt.
