    Hi @Akshay!

    We've opened a ticket for you (#161538) and I will send you a trial key there.

    Regarding the agent, you can use either a self-hosted or Microsoft-hosted agent. (If the latter, you need to make sure to use the steps here https://documentation.red-gate.com/sa7/building-your-assembly/using-smartassembly-with-azure-pipelines. If the former, you can just add a task to call on the SmartAssembly command line on the local hosted machine: https://documentation.red-gate.com/sa/building-your-assembly/using-the-command-line-mode)

    Hi @Akshay!

    ClickOnce will use the assembly built in the obj/release folder, so you need to make sure that the SmartAssembly project's input assembly comes from that obj/release folder, and that your csproj/vbproj file has OverwriteAssembly = "True" as described here: https://documentation.red-gate.com/sa7/building-your-assembly/using-smartassembly-with-clickonce-and-msi

    Can you please give this a try? I hope that helps!

    Manually  i have tried using click once publish, I able to obfuscate the exe.B
    But if I run build and publish pipeline is self hosting still it is not obfuscating. please suggest.
