Obfuscator for Csharp *.exe files ?

P: n/a
After having compiled a *.cs source code I got an *.exe file.
Is there a tool which is able to obfuscate/scramble the meta code to prevent de-assembling ?

You'll never be able to prevent disassembly. The obfuscation tools are
for renaming variables / function calls, as well as mixing things up so
that they look tangled and confusing when disassembled.

I believe that VS.NET 2003 ships with a trial obfuscation program.

I have used XenoCode with good success and it is mostly point and click -
which I like. The price is right too. Don't know enouph about the tech to
say if its any better/worse then Dotfuscator or not, but is simplier for me
to use. dlls and exes, and also console mode so you can include in your
post build events, etc.

You may take a look of our source code protection solution. In addition to
obfuscation, we offer a protector that prevents MSIL disassembly and
decompilation. I believe this is the best protection strategy you can get
from the current markets.

If you want to get even better protection, you can also link the .NET
Framework libraries (e.g., System.Windows.Forms.dll) into your own exe:
