signing an assembly

Val
I was trying to publish my project for installing the application on another
computer, but encoutered an error when using a wizard. Several assemblies
that I was refering too in a project gave the following:

Error 1 Assembly 'Name' must be strong signed in order to be marked as a
prerequisite.

Now, I cannot even build the project, whithout getting this error. How do I
restore it back?

Thanks

You can create strong name keys for those dll's and sign them, and then you
can either refresh or re-add the dll's back to your references.

Use the al.exe command line tool, before that create a key (.snk file)
