[in] The name of the key container. wszKeyContainer must be a non-empty string.


[in] The binary key pair.

Use the StrongNameKeyDelete function to delete the key container.

If the StrongNameKeyInstall function does not complete successfully, call the StrongNameErrorInfo function to retrieve the last generated error.
