GacUtil and 64-bits

posted in Developers, Technology |

Another stupid mistake I just made. I’ve been developing some 64-bit .NET code and was trying to call gacutil to register some DLLs. I kept getting the error message-

“Failure adding assembly to the cache: Strong name signature could not be verified. Was the assembly built delay-signed?”

It turns out I was trying to run a 32-bit version of GacUtil on a 64-bit assembly. The error message was unhelpful, but switching to the 64-bit Gacutil solved the problem right away.

There is currently one response to “GacUtil and 64-bits”

    Jeez – you might have been kind enough to say where the hec gacutil for GAC_64 can be found.
