Ah great, I use Reactor too. Now I have to double check if it works on 64 bit...

Weird thing is, they claim to have 64 bit support:

.NET Reactor [] *14-Apr-2006

  • [+] Added support for multi character set(obfuscation)

  • [+] Improved internal protection

  • [+] Full Windows x64 support

  • [!] Fixed protection deadlock with some libraries

  • [!] Fixed minor bugs

You did get the reply. I sent them an email few days ago and still waiting for a response :(. Perhaps someone needs to get up and realise this opportunity.

Although I can't get this to work properly but there is a lot of code to re-use.
