JetBrains is also providing decompiling functionality as part of ReSharper, the renowned productivity tool for Visual Studio.
dotPeek is available for download in two distributions: an .msi installer and a .zip archive.
The installer-based distribution is a safe bet if you want to use dotPeek on a single PC and take advantage of automatic version management.
Windows Explorer Integration
To If you want to be able to open assemblies in dotPeek by double-clicking them or using the Windows Explorer context menu, you need to enable Windows Explorer integration.
This is accomplished in two different ways depending on the type of dotPeek distribution that you're using.
If you're installing dotPeek using the installer, Windows Explorer integration is set using the installation wizard.
However, if you're using the zip distribution, you need to choose Tools > Options, and select Integrate with Windows Explorer under Environment > General.This has an additional implication: whether you choose to integrate dotPeek with Windows Explorer is now set from the installer, not from dotPeek Options to enable Windows Explorer integration.
Viewing the Source Code
Source code that dotPeek decompiles is presented as C#. The source code view area has the look-and-feel of editor tabs in Visual Studio, with line numbers, options for word wrap and outlining, white space marks, and tabs to open different types in.
