Dotfuscator : Error after obfuscation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using dotfuscator to obfuscate my vb.net application(myapp.exe). But i am getting error while running the obfuscated file.

    Below is the error when i open the exe which is obfuscated.

    "The settings property 'Import' was not found. ImportSetting"

    My application uses .config(myapp.exe.config) file which has setting like below

    <userSettings>
            <myapp.My.MySettings>
                <setting name="Import" serializeAs="String">
                    <value>True</value>
                </setting>
            </myapp.My.MySettings>
    </userSettings>

    If i don't obfuscate then application works fine. The error comes only if i obfuscate the my application.

    Procedure i follow during obfuscation:

    First i open create new project in dotfuscator.

    In add input assembly i add myapp.exe and myapp.vshost.exe file from the bin folder of my project.

    In build menu i select destination directory and click on build.

    Now obfuscated file will be generated which i will use.

    So please help me to solve this error.
