A .NET Assembly Log Viewer

A .NET Assembly Log Viewer

This utility tool logs the information when you build the assembly and is packaged along with the .NET Framework Tools. It allows you to view all the assembly bindings in an application. This means that if there’s a failure, it’s been logged along with complete descriptions of said failure.

For the viewer to log all the results, you need to add certain keys to the registry. Most machines don’t have these keys. If your machine has them, simply changed the value or else create a new DWORD key named ForceLog. The value of this key should be greater than 0.
