.NET assembly signing
Use this sheet to specify how to sign the assembly files that are created. This sheet is visble only if the original assembly is signed.
This is visible only if the original assembly has a strong name. Specifies the method of how the strong name is signed to the localized files. Possible values are:
|Delay sign localized assemblies using a temporal key
Select this if you do not have the key file at the moment, but you will get it later or you can send the created localized assembly files to the key author to be signed. Application delay sings assemblies with a temporal key of they can later be signed with the real key.
|Sign localized assemblies using a key file||
Select this if you have an SNK or PFX key file. If the key file requires a password, enter that into the Password field.
|Sign localized assemblies using a key container||
Select this if you have already added the key into the key container and you know the name of the key in the container.
Use sn.exe tool to add your key to the container. The following command adds the key from
Check Delay sign if your key file contains only the public key part, and somebody else will do the final signing. Note! Localized assemblies can not be deployed until somebody completes signing.
Check Do not warn about incomplete signing checkbox to not to write any warnings about the incomplete signing (e.g., no sign method selected or delay signing used).
Check Register localized assemblies for verification skipping to skip assembly verification in the case you want to test delay signed assemblies on this machine.
This is visible only if the original assembly has a digital signature. Specifies the method of how the digital signature is signed to the localized files. Possible values are:
|Do not add a digital signature but add later
Soluling does not add the signature. You should add it later using some other tool.
|Use a command line tool to add a signature||
Soluling uses a command line tool such as
Signtool application specifies the sign tool application that is used when adding the digital signature. If you have Windows SDK installed, Soluling tries to find the SignTool.exe, and if found, uses that value. If you want to use some other sign tool, enter the full application path name here.
Command line parameters specifies the command line parameters that are passed to the sign tool. Use %s to mark the place where the file to be signed is placed..
Many assemblies have used both signing types. They have a strong name and, in addition, contain a digital signature.
Check this if you want to copy the above settings to other compatible sources in the project. This is visible if you have more than one compatible source in the project.
