Brutal.Dev.StrongNameSigner 2.7.1

Automatic strong-name signing of referenced assemblies.

Utility software to strong-name sign .NET assemblies, including assemblies you do not have the source code for.

If you strong-name sign your own projects you may have noticed that if you reference an unsigned third party assembly you get an error similar to "Referenced assembly 'A.B.C' does not have a strong name". If you did not create this assembly, you can use this tool to sign the assembly with your own (or temporarily generated) strong-name key.

The tool will also re-write the assembly references (as well as any InternalsVisibleTo references) to match the new signed versions of the assemblies you create.

- Log with high priority when files are being changed during the automated signing process.
