key pair generation after .NET upgrade

After upgrading from .NET 1.0.3705 to .NET 1.1.4322 I haven't been able to sign my assemblies anymore.
Neither have I been able to create a key pair using sn -k.
Does anybody have an idea, what's happening ?

OK, what's the error?

Again - what's the error?

The error I get when trying to generate a key pair is:
Failed to generate a strong name key pair -- Access is denied.

Found the problem some time ago.
It was an access right issue to the directory where windows keeps key containers
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto

Just had to give myself read access to that.
