newbie: IDA and signatures for delphi and vs.net ??? is what I need ???

So this is a newbie question, sorry if it is boring - some help will be more then welcome !

I am using most recent IDA that I found around here. When I disasemble a dll file (visual studio component or assembly, usually asp.net component) how do I make IDA to recognize standard visual studio libraries. Why I want this?

I don't wish to see the code that belongs to standard libraries or .NET framework, I don't need that sources. I just wish to see the code written by authors of the component.

I believe this has to do with something called signatures, right? Ok, if so, please:

- where do I find signatures for delphi 2006 vcl and lib?
- where do I find signatures for vs.net 2005 libs

Am I wrong ?


My respect and regards fiyes to all gurus who rock and rule on this forum. I wish I know more...

Use Reflector to decompile .NET assemblies.

Reflector will show you the code only if the assembly is not protected.. If it's protected you won't be able to import it and get the code out of it.. Also if it's obfuscated you'll see nothing again..In most cases, obfuscation is used as a protection technique, so you'll need a good tool to remove the obfuscation or study the Framework itself and get the code at execution time
