Question Obfuscate software product


Hello,

I was wondering... did any of you used a software that can obfuscate .NET 3.5 programs and also create trial/evaluation versions of your program?
I'm looking for something in the range $100-700 that can do this.

I tried so far ElecKey 2.0 and IntelliLock but they seem to either crash my application on Vista Business x32 or simply don't work.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.
Thank you.

I use the professional version of {smartassembly} for obfuscating. It also does memory optimization, merging of assemblies, encrypting of strings, unhandled exception reporting, pruning of unused code, strong name signing, and so on. It is much easier to use than other obfuscators that I tried and offers more.

The cost for the pro version is $699 US, which includes a year of their unhandled exception reporting. I've been using it for a year with multiple apps and have found it to be a very good value.

Here's a review on it http://neosmart.net/blog/2007/smartassembly/

{smartassembly} won't help you with creating trial/evaluation versions of your apps. For my apps, I code that myself.

I use Dotfuscator Professional Edition, it's recommended by Microsoft but a little expensive, so I recommend Dot Net Reactor which is really good and I was working with that for about 6 months...

Thanks but Dot Net Reactor is almost the same as IntelliLock and I have a problem with that. If I select to obfuscate my classes and member names then when I open the obfuscated application it crashes.
How much does the Dotfuscator Professional Edition cost?

With any obfuscator there are some things that you may not be able to obfuscate. Objects that you pass to external libraries is one of those. I also found that it helped to exclude the My and My.Resources namespaces from obfuscation. I went with {smartassembly} since it was the easiest to use and did more than obfuscation. Plus it was less expensive than others that did less.

I do believe that Dotfuscator is the best product around.
I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.
The price depends on your usage.

Default I would give IntelliLock another try...

If you are still looking for an application for obfuscation and creating trial versions of software, I would look at IntelliLock again. I have been trying it out for the past couple of weeks and I have to say I am very impressed. Especially considering the price that you can get the software for.

If you are getting errors when obfuscating, I would take a look at what or how much of your app you are trying to protect. Sometimes if you are using reflection, obfuscating the type names can cause problems (with any product).

I would encourage you to contact them here http://www.eziriz.com/contactus.htm if you have questions or problems. They have been extremely helpful and very quick to respond to issues.

Hi,

Is there any good news about the IntelliLock? I'm also looking for the same tool for licensing/protecting our products.


Thanks
