While extending the Visual Studio development you might be working on an extension that would be using the fully qualified (4-part) name of an assembly.
Below are the simple steps to extend the visual studio
Open Visual Studio
Go to Tools –> External Tools
Click on “Add” to add a tool, and put in the following values:
Title: Get Qualified Assembly Name
Arguments: -command “[System.Reflection.AssemblyName]::GetAssemblyName(“$(TargetPath)”).FullName”
When this menu item is selected (Tools->Get Qualified Assembly Name), the assembly name is given in the output window.
It should look like
MyApp, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c2534056547c8962
