Rebex libraries always HAVE strong names.
However, there are two GACs in MS Windows:

The 2.0 GAC can be browsed using the following path:

To find the proper version of gacutil, you have to look into your .NET SDK folder.
E.g. for .NET 4.7, you can find the gacutil.exe in the following folder (if .NET SDK is installed):
c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v10.0A\bin\NETFX 4.7 Tools\
