OK. OK I am trying to help a friend out here and I am not real familiar with asp.net. I still do most of my webpages in asp.
some of the pages use a connection string to pull data from a database. My problem is that I found the connection string in a DLL file that is located in the BIN folder. Is there a way to edit this? I do not have any source code from the original developer and they are now out of business.
What are my opinions? I have used Reflector to view the inside of the file and its seems that the only thing this file does is a DB connection. I exported the files to a directory and it created a *.csproj file with a couple other files. I am assuming this is the decompiled source code.... Am I right? What do I do with it from here? I know I need to change the one file that has the connection string but after I do that do I have to recompile? If so how do I do that?
