Interop.MSHelpS ervices not strongly named

I have a forms based plugin architecture using C# that includes help files using MSHelpServices. However, my strongly named assemblies cannot be created because Interop.MSHelpS ervices is not strongly named. I get the following message during a build, presumedly from AL.exe:

Assembly generation failed -- Referenced assembly 'Interop.MSHelp Services' does not have a strong name

What is the strategy for handling this?

Jack,

I'm unfamiliar with MSHelpServices, but I am assuming it's just a COM component. (Because of the 'Interop.MSHelp Services' )

This file (interop assembly) is created for you when you create a reference through visual studio.net, and as such there is no control. However, VS.NET just uses tlbImp.exe which comes as part of the SDK. You can use the /keyfile parameter to specify a strong name key file to use for signing the created interop assembly.

Using this approach to create the interop assembly should help.

Cheers

Eddie de Bear

Hey all, I'm really going through a small hell right now - I've completely lost it :) I made a project, using two interop libraries from exchange (created them as in this msdn article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnsmtps/html/writingmngsinks.asp). I set my project properties as 'Register as COM interop' to true, I can install it my project on my developement machine without a flaw. Great.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
