I'm the nominal OP, but I raised the question in response to what an 
(ex-) Delphi programmer was asking elsewhere about obfuscators etc. for 
.NET which is what he now uses.

He posts: "...particularly database access strings. I realised I had the 
passwords in plain text, so figured this must be a well-trodden path. 
Found a thread about it from 2006, with detailed discussion. Struck me 
as odd that ten years later it isn't automatically solved in Visual Studio."
