aspdotnet_website_programming thread: Unable to create the SNK file


Message #1 by "Tim Muska" <tim_muska@h...> on Mon, 6 Jan 2003 22:22:30
I?m in chapter 2 on page 33 and I?m trying to create a SNK file. 

>sn -k KeyFile.snk
Command "sn" is not valid.

I followed the instruction exactly and I?m unable to create this file.

<b>**THE COMMAND IS CASE SENSATIVE.**<b>

The Strong Name command-line tool (sn.exe) can be used to generate a new 
public-private key pair and to write that pair to a file which could be 
then used to create the assembly:

sn -k Thekey.snk

This utility could be found in the .NET Framework's Bin folder C:\Program 
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\FrameworkSDK\Bin (on my computer)


<b>The Easy Way<b>: 
Note: You could also run a .NET Command Window by selecting Start -> 
Programs -> Microsoft Visual Studio .NET -> Visual Studio .NET Tools >- 
Visual Studio .NET Command Prompt, which sets all of the required paths 
for you.

Thanks Michael

I was trying to create the snk file in the Command Window within VS.Net.

I'm a newbie, Tim
