Hello.
I am evaluating .Net Encryptor for my company, and i have a question. As far as i can understand, .Net Encryptor require the assembly that i want to encrypt, to be signed with a strong name. This lead to the problem that we must then proceed to sign every dll/project that is referenced. Since this process is not an option at the moment, my question is, is it possible to use .Net Encryptor in another way ?

No it is not possible to use .NET Encryptor without strong naming the entry assembly. .NET Encryptor uses the strong name to ensure that only the application signed with your unique strong name can decrypt and load the the assemblies.

If you are using a 3rd party DLL assembly that is not strong named then it is possible to strong name it using your own assembly (or better still request a strong named version from the author). See:
