Deployeing MultiColumnLookupField project in wss/sharepoint 2007

Jun 14, 2010 at 5:42 AM

I was looking for how to use this control into sharepoint, and after doing work around I have got this solution for others: 

1.       Build your assembly(project) and install it in the GAC on the server.

2.       Copy the ascx control(MultiColumnLookupField.ascx) to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES

3.       Copy the fldtypesMultiColumnLookup.xml to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\XML

4.       Reset IIS

Is there anyone out there who could turn this into a solution package (.wsp) for installation and deployment in MOSS 2007? I know how to install and deploy a solution package, but I don't have Visual Studio (nor do I know how to use it), and I don't know how to follow the above instructions to "install it in the GAC". It seems like WSP Builder ( could create the package, but I don't have Visual Studio.
