You are trying to compile a signed application that references an unsigned application. This breaks the integrity of the application, so the compiler stops you.

When you compile an application with a strong name (digital signature in the Signing tab of the project's Properties window), all the reference assemblies should also be signed. Security would be compromised otherwise.

Contact whoever provided you with AxInterop.ChargeNet and ask them for a signed version of their assembly.

You did not make things hard. They are hard as they are :-).

This was one we all get at some time in the first few years, and I will tell you that if they had phrased their error message around digital signature instead of "strong name", everybody would understand it a little more easily.
