Not sure if anyone can help if they don't have this software, but am going to try. Maybe someone knows.
I use logic NP obfuscator and am trying to compile a dll plugin I am wanting to send on the app portathon, so I need an answer as soon as possible if anyone can share some insight.
Obviously there is some obfuscating in the acad support files, that I guess mine is bucking with. This is the error message I am getting. I tried to ignore the acad stuff.

You have to own a Obfuscator, but most arn't cheap, in the $2500 range, but I was able to find one, LogicNP, out of India for less than $300. Tell them James Boone sent you.
The product is relativly easy to work, once you learn all the neances of obfuscation and the terminology.
Consider two dependent Projects in your solution .A and B , if A.DLL alone is builded and updated in crypto obfuscator then the the references to B.DLL are not got from the metadata from the obfuscator
..... so consider the whole solution always before obfuscating the solution .
The obfuscator I have compiles both at the same time. Actually I have to take special efforts to remove any I don't want compiled.
