How to use Dotfuscator CE with Visual Studio 2010 Installer?
Posted on 2014-09-03
I thought this would be easy but....I'm trying to create an .MSI file for deployment of a winform application in Visual Studio 2010.
Visual Studio 2010
Visual Studio 2010 Installer
Single Project called "MyProject"
From what I read in various tutorials and (GASP) the instruction manual for Dotfuscator, it seems it isn't integrated into the build process so I have to do it manually. OPening Dotfuscator and creating the new .exe was trivial but now where do I go? I tried replacing the original .exe in the BIN, OBJ, debug, and Release folders. When I try to deploy that MSI, or even build it I get an error that the Hashes don't match. SOmewhere a tutorial said to rehash the new dotfuscated assembly but I couldn't figure out how or where to do that.
What I'm looking for is a 'for dummies' checklist for building an MSI with 2010 Installer and Dotfuscator CE.
Any help or good videos out there?
