Can't sign WRL-based assembly with Strong Name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi dear experts!

    I have two projects, the first one is Windows Runtime Component, that generates output winmd-file and the second one is the Windows Runtime Component uses Windows Runtime C++ Template Library with WinRT and COM inside.

    I try to sign both assemblies with Strong Names by using the compiler.

    I've generated SN keys, using sn.exe, then I tried to specify the location of a key file in the Advanced property page in the Linker section of the Configuration Properties section of the Property Pages window and build my project (doesn't matter, which one - result the same), VS2013 ignores both sections: Key File and Delay Sign. Output dll was not signed. The same behaviour with Windows Metadata Key File and Windows Metadata Delay Sign (I need to sign winmd-files too).

    Not good, but not fatal. I've found workaround and use Additional Options of Command Line property page. I've added /WINMDKEYFILE:file_name and /WINMDDELAYSIGN mannually, built my project and everything is OK! But just for pure WRC project. The same manipulations with "WRL" project don't work. 

    Could you, please, explain me, how can I sign WRL-based project? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for your response! I'm still stuck with this issue. There is no one familiar with this issue?

  • Hi, Jenny!

    Yes, I've tested all MSDN manuals and How Tos. It doesn't help me.
