How to get the .NET Assembly full name

by Daniel Halan 23. March 2007 00:48

There is often that one need to get an assembly’s full name, while one can do it quite simply in C# by instancing the assembly and calling GetName(), but when setting up applications outside the development environment, You can use SN.exe to retrieve the PublicKeyToken using the -T parameter, but still it would be nice to get the whole Assembly Name, so here is a small command prompt app that does the job.

Example of an Assembly full name:
"GetAsmName, Version=, Culture=neutral,

Copy the files to Windows\System32 folder or add the path to your PATH environment variable.

GetAsmName <<path\fileName.dll|exe>>
