Assembly '<assembly>' must have a strong name to be installed globally

Only strong-named assemblies can be installed in the global assembly cache. You must either install the referenced assembly in another folder, or modify the assembly so that it has a strong name.

To correct this error

If the assembly does not need to be installed in the global assembly cache:

  • In the File System Editor, move the assembly to a different folder.
  • If the assembly needs to be installed in the global assembly cache:
  • Locate the dependency referenced in the error message and sign it. For more information, see Deployment and the Global Assembly Cache.
