Hello,

I want to distribute my Win Form C# application and I don't want anybody to be able to change or even view the source code because it's a commercial application.

I really liked CodeVeil, but it costs around $1500! I cannot afford it.

What are my options?

Please advise.

I know but the Community Edition is pretty useless:

The executable alone for sure.

this obfuscator is free, but don't expect to have all the features of a commercial obfuscator
