New way to obfuscate plugins

In the last days I worked on updating the obfuscate plugin app for Xojo. We had some success with the xojo plugins, but there are still the internal plugins and the runtime library. But instead of changing the files inside the xojo app, we got another idea:
We simply post process the built app, changing all the library names.
Take a look on this screenshot:

As you see we renamed all libraries and also changed all the library references to the new names. So the app is still running perfectly.
Please try it. Project is here: ObfuscateApp.zip or included with next plugins.

(for Mac app I copied the Frameworks folder out of the app so you see it on the screenshot)

I tried to run the program in windows 7. It has renamed all the dll’s. But when tried to run the application it gives error : Failed to locate framework dll and exit.

Well, it’s possible that first version has a bug. For me it worked on Windows at least.
