Using Compact Framework Controls in Visual Studio .NET 2003 Gives a Strong Name Error
An error may be received in Visual Studio .NET 2003 when using the IDAutomation Barcode DLL for .NET Compact Framework. The error will look similar to the following:
Assembly IDAutomationCFLinear.dll not a strongly named assembly
This error is generated because the design time version of the control is strongly named properly, but the run time version of the control is not.
Upgrade to the most recent version of the IDAutomation Barcode DLL for .NET Compact Framework.
