IssuePrograms written with RSA SecurID Software Token SDK produces incorrect token codes
Running RSA SecurID Software Token SDK fails
CauseApplications written to use the RSA SecurID Software Token SDK then run within an integrated compiler (such as Microsoft Visual Studio), incorrect token codes are created
ResolutionThis is correct behavior. The RSA SecurID Software Token SDK is designed to run on an obfuscation mode in a developer environment. This is a security feature to prevent hackers from reverse engineering the code.

If the application is run outside of the integrated environment, it will run correctly. Developers should note that within the development environment, calls made to the API will execute and return 8-character results allowing for general debugging. However, the SDK will not actually generate a valid PASSCODE.
