dotfuscator

P: n/a
I have a dll created from an asp.net component I wrote. I want to
distribute it to other developers but I'm told it can be reverse engineered.
I read the docs on dotfuscator thinking that this could add protection.

The docs say that to run it from vs.net to run it from the external tools
menu then follow the gui. The External Tools dialog box comes up, I
highlight Dot&Fuscator Community Edition, Hit OK and nothing happens.

What am I missing?
Thanks,
T

The dialog box you see is for adding new external tools to the IDE. To
invoke Dotfuscator, look for 'Dotfuscator Community Edition' item in the
IDE's Tools menu itself and click it.

In VS.NET 2005, Dotfuscator has its own menu entry:

"Tools", "Dotfuscator Community Edition".

It works fine, and so does the link to Dotfuscator in the
"Start Menu", "Programs", "Microsoft Visual Studio 2005",
"Visual Studio Tools", "Dotfuscator Community Edition".

Which version of VS.NET are you using ?
