Dotfuscatoring my application
OK, bit of a newbie so please bear with me...
Is this the ideal deployment method:
1. Build my application.
2. Build an installer project for my app.
3. Create a Dosfucator ClickOnce Project and assign my installer app as an Input Assembly along with the Dosfucator manifest file?
Sorry, got a bit losted with the tutorial video on the Dosfucator site...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Your application project outputs an assembly. An assembly is a .NET EXE or DLL. That assembly is the input for Dotfuscator, which outputs an obfuscated assembly. That obfuscated assembly is what gets installed. The obfuscated assembly is functionally equivalent to the original but with names changed, etc, to make it apparently meaningless to anyone who decompiles it.
Apologies for the late reply.
Is Dotfuscator free or would I have to pay for a license?
VS Pro includes Dotfuscator Community Edition. If you want more features then you have to pay.
