Hide Your Code

So you've just finished your software masterpiece, a beautiful pile of code that could be the next VisiCalc. So what's stopping all the creeps on the Internet from exposing the source code and giving it to every code monkey from Boston to Bismark?

Stealing your intellectual property is one thing. Even worse, hackers can use the source to attack your product!

If you develop with Visual Studio, more help is in the way. There is an upgraded free tool from PreEmptive Solutions -- long known for its obfuscation technology -- that can hide your code, and it will be bundled with the next round of Visual Studio. The new rev is more tightly integrated with VS than it has been in the past.
