  • Hello,

    The only true method to lock an executable is with an obfuscator, without one your executable and DLL files are open to be decompiled. For example, there are tools such as RedGate Reflector which is standalone or with Resharper all one needs to do is select go to definition to see code that can be compiled in their project.

    I'm not going to recommend one because the best ones (in regards to what I would use) are paid products.
