Gotchas: SN.EXE problem on Vista fixed in VS 2008!

Tuesday, March 18, 2008 – 10:58 AM

Back in September I ran into some issues using SN.EXE on Vista. SN would look like it had added a strong name verification skipping entry when really it hadn’t.

Doing the SN -Vr *,######### with the SN.EXE tool that ships with Visual Studio 2008 gives a much better behavior.


Now you get the error “Failed to open registry key — access denied”. Running the same command from a command prompt running with Administrator privileges works fine. All is right with the World.
