I want to generate the public and private xml files from an existing .snk private key file - how do I do this?

I think I was approaching this wrong. In the older AppUpdater, you had to sign your KeyList.dll with the same privatekey.snk that you signed your assemblies with during compile. With the Updater Application Block, you generate a new privateKey to use by the manifest and publicKey used in the downloader. The key that you signed your assemblies with during compile doesn't have to be the same key that you use with the manifest/downloader, correct?

You are right, the key for signing the manifest does not have any relation to the key with which you sign your assemblies.
