Description: AdmiralDebilitate is a tool for removing .NET strong name signing, particularly suited for large projects consisting of multiple nested dependencies. The interface is fairly simple: open up all relevant executables simultaneously (or all PEs if late-binding is in use) and ‘mark’ those that are to be modified. AdmiralDebilitate will determine the minimal area of the dependency tree that requires fixing and execute things appropriately. Any mismatching references will be listed in the ‘Problem Areas’ pane. Please report any bugs, after reading the following list of notes and caveats:

* All dependencies on mscorlib and System.* are ignored. I don’t see why this should be a problem, but bear it in mind if something isn’t working.
* Only exe and dll files are supported.
* The tool searches only the current folder for DLLs referenced by the seeding assemblies. If the system is relying on environment variables being set or suchlike, then AdmiralDebilitate will probably fail to load all the assemblies. A workaround is to temporarily place all the files in the same directory.


* 17/06/08 - A silly little fencepost error was causing problems with assemblies having AssemblyRef as their last table. That’s fixed in version 0.2.

Thanks go out to Dan Pistelli, without whose .NET specification this wouldn’t have happened.
