Strongly named assembly won't load


I have a C++ managed assembly (.dll) which links to a bunch of native
libraries. Everything works fine if I don't make the managed assembly a
strongly named one.

Once I make it a strongly named assembly by adding the following attribute:

[assembly:System ::Reflection::A ssemblyKeyFile( "pub_pri.sn k")];

my test application (C# Test.exe) fails to load it and gives me the
following error:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.File LoadException' occurred in

Additional information: Could not load file or assembly
'Rimage.Rapid.A pi.D, Version= , Culture=neutral ,
PublicKeyToken= 6a6da59bfa86aa0 7' or one of its dependencies. Strong name
validation failed. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8013141A)

As far as I can tell I followed all the steps to strongly name an assembly

I do recall reading somewhere that when a strongly named assembly links or
references a not strongly named assembly it is not considered a strongly
named assembly. Since my managed assembly links to native libraries, and I
assumed native libraries cannot be considered strongly named, can my managed
assembly every be strongly named? Is this why it doesn't load?

Thanks in advance, Dave

I've got a web service that uses a strongly named assembly. Last week (I think it was just after windows update installed some updates) the web service stopped working complaining (in the contructor) that it can't load the assembly. After searching around I found out about the AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers() attribute, added it to the assembly, recompiled everything and things started working again. This morning I come back to work, and...

The changes to asp.net makes it very difficult for us to migrate one of our web projects to 2.0 and makes deployments more difficult for us. It seems that the new Asp.net model is only designed to place assemblies in the bin directory of the application. For our application, we need to deploy to the GAC. We have customized a SharePoint portal and have put in our own pages and controls (both user and custom) into SharePoint pages. ...

I am having a problem deserializing objects from a library when the following conditions exist: 1- The library is strongly named 2- The serialized file was created with version 1.0 of the assembly 3- I am trying to deserialize from an EXE that references version 2.0 of the assembly 4- Both version 1.0 and 2.0 of the assembly reside in the GAC (no policy redirects exist).

I have built a managed wrapper class and assembly that expose much functionality available in unmanaged legacy DLLs. I can write VB apps that interface with the managed assembly, and the managed assembly makes calls to the legacy dlls. All seems to work fine when the assembly is a private assembly. When I go through the process of strong naming the assembly and placing it into the GAC, none of my VB apps will initialize. I have gone to...
