Hi,
I'm trying to build and register the Strong-Naming Guidance Package. First of all I found that the assemblies were all referring to a non-existent *.snk file in a keys folder and so wouldn't compile. Created a strong-name key file and recompiled the assemblies and that work. When registering the package though, I got the following error:

Microsoft.Practices.RecipeFramework.ActionExecutionException: An exception occurred during the binding of reference or execution of recipe Register. Error was: Action Register failed to execute:
Failed to process package. See the Guidance Package Development output window for more information about the error..
You can remove the reference to this recipe through the Guidance Package Manager. ---> System.Configuration.Install.InstallException: Failed to process package. See the Guidance Package Development output window for more information about the error.

Any idea what's wrong?
