SqlServerSamples - SampleKey.snk

    Question

  • Hi I've just installed SqlServerSamples.msi.

    I am using Express versionss of SQL Server and C#.

    When running the Mars solution (C#) I get the following error:

    "Error 1 Cryptographic failure while signing assembly 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Engine\Data Access\ADO\MARS\CS\MARS\obj\Release\MARS.exe' -- 'Error reading key file 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\SampleKey.snk' -- The system cannot find the file specified. ' MARS"

    I have also executed this line

    sn -k Samplekey.snk

    from the samples directory as well as from the Start Run

    but get the "sn is recognized as internal or external command...

    Can someone please help

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    The sn.exe is part of the .NET Framework SDK and will be in the bin folder of the .NET Framework SDK installation. This should be located within the Program Files folder. I recommend you run a search for sn.exe within Program Files, locate the executable and then run the command from the correct path.

    Regards,

  • Thanks Vikram, that is exactly what I needed.

    It generated the SampleKey.snk file in the SDK\v2.0\bin

    which I copied to the sqlserver samples directory. I have other problems but at least its not complaining about the Sample key.

    Thanks again for taking the time to help.
