Hello,
I have a windows desktop application. The application has one Exe and 5 .net dll files. The application is in vb.net 2008. Can anyone suggest free obfuscation tool or any tool with value not more than USD 100.

Regards,
MI

Hello shahprabal,

I found http://rustemsoft.com/SkaterLight.htm to be good. But the issue is why does it show .Net Framework version 2.5.xxx when actually I am using .Net 3.5?

I haven't use it but looking at : http://www.rustemsoft.com/SkaterDoc/index.html
why don't you use the built in one from dotfuscator. I have used it and didn't have any issues.

I wrote to RustemSoft about this issue and they say that internally Ms using framework 2.0.
Regarding .net's dotfuscator, I will check. I will obfuscate the binaries using both dotfuscator and RustemSoft's tool and check the difference.

That makes sense... thats why when you goto IIS settings to pick the .Net framework version you can only pick 1.1 or 2.0.
I would use both obfuscator and open up the assemblies with reflector and take a quick look.
