Strong naming failure

Hi, I just downloaded the Feb07 CTP and attempted to use the strong naming package. there are two problems.
(a) it doesnt let me create a strong name key - the ACCEPT button is permanently grayed out. and
(b) when i create my own key and use the the second GAT option/recipe to strong name the solution and choose the entlib.nunit solution root, it crashes with the following message : An exception occurred during the binding of reference or execution of recipe StrongNameSolution. Error was Action:StrongNameProjects failed to execute. Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indicator that other memory is corrupt. You can remove the reference to this recipe through the Guidance Package"

Im running this on a XP VPC with .NET 2.0 and vs2005 teamsuite installed

Any ideas on what might be happening?

Hi Benjy -

I'm not sure what's going on with issue a), but I'll look into it.
We've seen issue b) - it appears to be caused by a bug in Visual Studio 2005 which is fixed with SP1. Could you install SP1 and let us know if you still get the issue?

Hi Tom,
I will install SP1 and test this out again.
