Strong name signature could not be verified

May 18, 2013 at 2:29 AM

I'm using MVC 4 with visual studio 2012. Today I downloaded the source code to make a change to the SimpleMembershipProvider. I get this error when I try to use the new dll files in a project "Strong name signature could not be verified"

How should I fix this?

Hi Harrison,

If you build any of the assemblies from the source code, they will be "delay signed," which means they do not have a full strong-name signature. To run those DLLs you will have to disable strong-name verification, which is one of the tools included in the source tree. This should have been run automatically on your machine when you build, but if not, or it needs to be updated, you can run "build EnableSkipStrongNames" to update the strong name verification skip list.
