? How to strong name a 3rd Party Assembly ?


T

Tony Jones

I have a third party assembly that I need to strong name because the C#
project I'm referencing it in will be strong named.

Every time I compile my project I'm getting "Assembly generation failed --
Referenced assembly 'xxxxx' does not have a strong name".

The referenced assembly is a .NET assembly that does not have a strong name.
It there a way to strong name it? I DO NOT have the source code for the
referenced third party assembly.

Thanks.

Tony,

referenced third party assembly.

Have you tried contacting the vendor and ask them if they can provide
a strongly named assembly?

Yes, but they said that had "problems" strong-naming the component. I don't
know what problems they are talking about - but I'm looking into the issue.

Thanks!

If you can convince them to put in the DelaySignAttribute, that would
reserve space in the assembly that you can use to sign it.

Other than that, your only real option is IL roundtripping which is a
pain...
