Hi Rotem, Sorry for the inconvenience. This happens only for the custom built assemblies. Please refer this KB for more details: http://www.syncfusion.com/support/kb/studio/Default.aspx?ToDo=view&questId=16 Thanks, Jay

Hi Rotem, I need more details to analyze the issue: 1) Are you using the full version of the Essentail Studio? Or the eval version? Our records indicate that you have only an eval copy. 2) Normally ''strong name validaion'' error is thrown if you modify our library source code (C:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Shared.Windows\Src) and deploy the custom libraries without signing with your own public/private key. Have you modified our src. code and built the libraries? Which dlls have you modified - like Syncfusion.Grid.Base.dll, Syncfusion.Grid.Windows.dll, Syncfusion.Shared.Base.dll and Syncfusion.Shared.Windows.dll? Have you signed them all? You may use the following command to verify the assembly for strong name signature self consistency. It should say "Assembly Syncfusion.Shared.Base.dll'' is valid". Sn -vf Syncfusion.Shared.Base.dll In the AssemblyInfo.cs, did you specify the AssemblyDelaySign attribute to "False"? Also refer this help on deploying application: http://www.syncfusion.com/library/startedbase/distributingessential__________.html Regards, Jay

I am not modifying your code, but still get the error for Syncfusion.Tool.Window.dll

In AssemblyInfo.cs I do not have AssemblyDelaySign attribute specified.

Hi Bharat,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Essential Studio. You can get the AssemblyInfo.cs file of the Tools.Windows source from the below location.

${install_drive}:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Tools.Windows\Src\assemblyinfo.cs

Please follow the below steps to build the source using the new private key.

1. Follow the instructions at: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6f05ezxy.aspx to create your own private key
2. Copy the snk file created (for example eti.snk) to ${install_drive}:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Tools.Windows\
3. Change the AssemblyInfo.cs under ${install_drive}:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Tools.Windows\Src\ to point to this private key instead of the Syncfusion public key that it is pointing to by default:
[assembly: AssemblyDelaySign(true)]
[assembly: AssemblyKeyFile("../../../sf.publicsnk")]

Change above lines to
[assembly: AssemblyDelaySign(false)]
[assembly: AssemblyKeyFile("../../../eti.snk")]

4. Rebuild the Syncfusion.Tools.Windows.dll solution file Syncfusion.Tools.Windows_2005.sln in Release configuration. You will find the output at C:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Windows\Tools.Windows\bin\Release.

5. You need to do this for all the sources of Syncfusion which you are making modifications.

Please try this and let us know if you need further help.
