I have a vb 2008 application and tried to obfuscate the source code but it will not run when compiled. I tried the free tool from MS, but nothing else yet. Do I have to obfuscate all of the project or can I just obfuscate the code on a DLL. I tried that but it did not work so I am not sure of what I did wrong.
