We have to provide an organization a ArcMap addin which is written in C#. It contains some algorithms that we would like to keep it to ourselves.
You know esri addin is actually a zip file you can unzip it and find the dll which means you can extract and decompile it.
It turns out you can not change the stuff in the package and rezip it.It would not be properly installed after. So it means I cannot obfuscate the code and replace the dll in the addin file.
Any ideas?
