Description: .netshrink is an exe packer (aka executable compressor). It means it can take your Windows or Linux .NET application executable file, compress it, add unpacking code to the output file while leaving it fully functional but with decreased size.

.netshrink uses LZMA compression algorithm to achieve maximum compression ratios.

With .netshrink you can password protect your applications, it will be impossible to run it without the proper password.

Password protection uses verification based on SHA256 hash function and 256 bit AES / Rijndael encryption.

With .netshrink you can also bind multiple DLL libraries to the output file so you can redistribute your application as a standalone file
