AssemblyKeyFileAttribute Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the AssemblyKeyFileAttribute class with the name of the file containing the key pair to generate a strong name for the assembly being attributed.

Remarks

There is no default path for the AssemblyKeyFileAttribute constructor. The value set by the constructor is interpreted by the linker, or by Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, that invokes the linker.
