    Hi @asem alsaif ,Welcome to Microsoft Q&A,

    Microsoft officially provides you with Dotfuscator. Please refer to the official documentation Dotfuscator for details.

    Your copy of Microsoft Visual Studio includes a copy of PreEmptive Protection - Dotfuscator Community, which is free for personal use. (This free version was formerly called Dotfuscator Community Edition or Dotfuscator CE.) For instructions on how to install the Dotfuscator Community edition that comes with Visual Studio, see the Installation Page.

    To start using Dotfuscator Community in Visual Studio, type dotfuscator in the Search Box (Ctrl+Q).

    • If Dotfuscator Community is installed, the Search Box displays the option to launch Dotfuscator Community under the Menu heading. For more information, see the Getting Started page of the full Dotfuscator Community User Guide.
    • If Dotfuscator Community is not installed, the Search box will show "Install PreEmptive Protection - Dotfuscator" under the "Individual Components" heading. For more information, see the Installation Page.

    The latest version of Dotfuscator Community is also available from the Dotfuscator download page at preemptive.com.

    Best Regards,
