I have been reading CLR via C# and realised that I needed to set up a short cut to the Intermediate Language disassenbler. So this is how to go about it.

First find your SendTo directory!
  1. Install the Platform SDK from if you have not already done so!
  2. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to LogonName/SentTo
  3. Under Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 access the folder according to

Do you the Platform SDK installed? If not, install it from (SDK for Windows 8 but installable under Windows 7)

Find ildasm.exe

  1. Open another Explorer and find ILDASM.EXE. Mine was at C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0A\bin\NETFX 4.0 Tools
  2. Right click and send to desktop (create shortcut)
  3. Cut to desk top, locate the ILDASM short cut, select it and cut.
  4. Go to to your SendTo directory and past in the shortcut. (I renamed mine to ILDasm)
  5. Reset the SendTo permissions!

Now you can subject any Dot Net Exe or DLL to examination by ILDasm.

The reason the Send To "folder" would give permission denied is because it's a junction point to where it actually resides. Rather than changing the permissions, just navigate to it directly by going to %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo.
