Have anyone tried to use a protected dll inside an ESRI Add-In for ArcGIS Desktop? We use a 3rd party company to protect our .NET dll-s before we package them.
This has worked for ArcGIS extensions before but now when try to do the same for an Add-In ArcMap keeps crashing as soon as we try to call functionality from within a protected dll. Calling this protected dll from outside ArcGIS Desktop works fine.
Workflow: 1) Compile dll-s from Visual Studio 2) Change the file extension from .esriAddIn to .zip and unzip the contents 3) Protect the dll-s using 3rd party software 4) Zip the folder and change the extension back to .esriAddIn
The Add-in installs fine with ArcMap and it launches the forms.
Anyone has got any ideas on why this doesn't work?
