Dotfuscator for VBA RRS feed

  • Question

  • does anyone know of any dotfuscator addins/apps that will successfully scramble my VBA code?

    if used VBASafe but it's a bit clunky and takes a bit of fidling with the exceptions file.  And, it's only available for Excel.

    until i have the vast amount of time required to rewrite all our code modules into c#, the code is open to all prying eyes (IT depts with wannabee developers)!

  • Also, the Community Edition doesn't do anything to obfuscate such things as control flow within your application, nor will it "combine" code from multiple assemblies into one assembly. These are features that are available within the "professional" paid-for versions.

    The best comparison between the Community Edition (the "free" version that comes with Visual Studio) and the "professional", paid-for editions can be found by looking at the following two links:

    Dotfuscator Community Edition 3.0 on MSDN

    The MSDN link is slightly out of date, however, gives a much better explanation of the actual features that are available within the various editions of Dotfuscator.

  • You could use this to hide your code
