Ngen fail with an protected .net exe file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello !

    I finish my application on vb.net 2013. After I have used a software called .NET reactor to protect my .exe file .

    This software put these protection :

    Necrobit

    Anti ILDASM

    Anti Tampering

    Control Flow Obfuscation

    String Encryption

    After , I run Ngen with the protected .exe file , and I get an error :

    NGEN failed because of the following error :

    The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest.

    What can I do ?

    Thank you !

  • If after you read the .Net Reactor Online Help and can't figure out the issue then you can contact support at EZIRIZ who sells .NET Reactor probably.

    I've never used Ngen.exe (Native Image Generator) so I would suggest you learn about it and use it with a test app to see how it works. Then when you understand it well enough perhaps you can answer that question yourself.

    I don't know what running one thing with an unprotected file would do and then after that a protected file would be used in some unexplained fashion. Perhaps you could allocate more information into what you mean by that. Something that responders could understand possibly.

    It is never "a software".

  • The unprotected file should do nothing undesirable.
