Cannot add a dll to reference

Guest

Hi all,

I meet a problem in building my .Net Solution and I would like to seek help.
After I have added a dll to reference in one of my project in my solution,
when I re-build the solution, I meet the following error :

------ Rebuild All started: Project: OIDCOMMON, Configuration: Debug .NET
------

Hi,

You have to create a strong name for referenced assemblies. To create a
strong named assembly you need to have a strong key file (key pair for
generating strong name). Use the command utility to create a key file: Sn -k
<destination_file> . Then open AssemblyInfo.cs(.vb) and add the following
line to it: [assembly: AssemblyFile("")]

Hello, thanks for your reply.

I think I have done what you mention. The problem is that after I add a
"ftp.dll" in my reference, the solution cannot be built.

But without the "ftp.dll", my solution can be built successfully.

So, how can I use the "ftp.dll" ?

Thanks in advance.

I finally can re-build the solution. I add the ftp.dll as reference to my
main startup project. Now it works.

It does not work when I add it as reference to other projects in my solution.

Thanks.

Hi,

Is this ftp.dll a .NET Assembly? If so then rebuild this assembly using a
strong name for that and your problem will be resolved.

Else if this is a com dll then you will still need to create one more Key
Pair file using sn.exe (as you have alredy created).
Copy this newly created keypair file in the project folder
Open the project property dialog box.
Navigate to "Common Properties", "General".
Enter the name of the snk file in front of the option that reads like ...
"Wrapper Assembly Key File"
Now compile your prioject and it should work.

Remember you will have to set this name for all the project that refer the
ftp.dll (you can use the same key pair file)

Regards
Niloday
