  • You mean that the third part assemblies aren't strongly named? The manufacturer of these assemblies should have given them a strong name while building them. There is no easy (or legal) way of doing this afterwards. You could possibly decompile the assemlies and compile them yourself with a strong name but then you are signing somebode else's assemblies.

    What you should do is to ask the manufacturer to sign the assemblies or choose some other third-party software.
