Strong name validation failed on 64bit OS

7. October 2010 by Dave Hawes 1 Comments

We have recently upgraded our development environments on my project to match the production environment which is running on a 64bit servers. There was a big gotcha which was the delayed signed dll’s in the dev environment were chucking a “Strong name validation failed” error when they were accessed.

There are well documented solutions around using the following command

SN.exe -Vr *,*

However this did not work on the 64bit computer because SN.exe is a 32bit program and put the entry in the 32bit part of the registry. So I moved the registry key this tool enters and put it in the 64bit part of the registry and then everything worked.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\StrongName\Verification\*,*]

Hope that helps some people out there ;)
