Earlier versions of Enterprise Library required that you build the source code. Enterprise Library 3.1 – May 2007 includes pre-compiled strong-named assemblies for all the source code. The assemblies have a version number of 3.1.0.0. They are signed with a Microsoft strong-naming key that is not included in the release. This means that you cannot build a compiled version from the source code that uses the same public key. However, you can use your own key pair to create strong-named assemblies. If you believe that you may customize the Enterprise Library source code, you should use the binaries that you compile from the source code with your own key instead of using the pre-compiled binaries that are signed with the Microsoft key.
