This exception occurs when building satellite assemblies using Globalizer.NET version 1.7.0 if a Visual Studio 2008 project uses a password protected strong name (.pfx file) to sign the assembly.

The problem arises because Microsoft have created a new format (.pfx) for password protected strong name files in Visual Studio 2008. If you select the “Protect my key file with a password” option when creating this option then it uses this new format.

We are investigating what we need to do to be able read the new password protected format – however there is very little information from Microsoft about this and so it may take some time to develop a fix. In the meantime it is still possible to sign assemblies in VS2008 using the older “snk” format by not checking the “Protect my key file with a password” option when you create a new strong name. Globalizer.NET will then be able to load and use these strong name files for signing assemblies.

This issue has now been fixed in the latest release of Globalizer.NET (1.7.1) which can read password protected strong name files.
