Obfuscator question

Hi all

I'm seeking for an obfuscator at a reasonable price.
Generally, obfuscators are very expensive. It is difficult for me, a single
programmer, to bear the cost of an obfuscator.
Therefore, I ask you to suggest a good obfuscator at a low price.
Thank you for sharing your experiences.

Out of interest, what's wrong with the one included in Visual Studio?

It's just a few more than a demo.
Has very limted features.
It's easy to elude.
And can be used for non-profit non-commercial projects only.

No, it's free for every VS.NET licensee. It's limited, but it doesn't
have to be too limited. After all, obfuscation starts my making as much
code internal and private as possible. E.g. in a .exe, no forms/classes
should be public, everything should be internal. Once the code which
doesn't have to be public is made internal, obfuscation really shines,
also with the shipped limited edition of dotfuscator.

Hi John,

I use .NET Reactor which has better protection than most obfuscators.
The one from Visual Studio is out of the question because the code is
still readable. .NET Reactor has a native wall as well. It is very cheap
- $172. It is not integrated in VS but has many other features.

Hi Henrik

are you in business with .NET Reactor? :-)

Do you think that NET Reactor is suitable for a library of controls?

IMHO, .NET Reactor is a good product but, according authors "In contrast to
obfuscators .NET Reactor completely stops any decompiling by mixing any pure
..NET assembly with native machine code".

I need an obfuscator that returns me a pure .NET DLL assembly, not a cake of
..NET code and machine code!

No, I'm not in business with them. But for a small company as mine the
price tag was more important than the solution. A pure .NET dll assembly
is still readable at I can not allow that.

I looked at CodeVeil which seemed interesting and tried it on my files
even though is has a more hefty price tag.

One thing I noticed about that tool was my F-Secure Anti-Virus flagged
the file as containing a virus. Searched on that on google and it seemed
to be a known problem for that tool which is not acceptable.
