Generates a new public/private key pair with the specified key size, for strong name use.
HRESULT StrongNameKeyGenEx ( [in] LPCWSTR wszKeyContainer, [in] DWORD dwFlags, [in] DWORD dwKeySize, [out] BYTE **ppbKeyBlob, [out] ULONG *pcbKeyBlob );
[in] The requested key container name.
wszKeyContainer must either be a non-empty string or null to generate a temporary name.
[in] A value that specifies whether to leave the key registered. The following values are supported:
0x00000000 - Used when
wszKeyContaineris null to generate a temporary key container name.
SN_LEAVE_KEY) - Specifies that the key should be left registered.
[in] The requested size of the key, in bits.
[out] The returned public/private key pair.
[out] The size, in bytes, of
S_OK if the method completed successfully; otherwise, an HRESULT value that indicates failure (see Common HRESULT Values for a list).
The .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1 require a
dwKeySize of 1024 bits to sign an assembly with a strong name; version 2.0 adds supports for 2048-bit keys.
After the key is retrieved, you should call the ICLRStrongName::StrongNameFreeBuffer method to release the allocated memory.
