Specs: Windows XP
I have a Program that my friend made,i asked him "hey,can i have the VB Project file,i want to see if i can modify the Program"
He Answered "well,i deleted the Files,so i cant give you it.You can De-compile it and make it a VB Project" so i downloaded 2 VB De-compiler Programs and when i try to save it as a VB Project,then open it in VisualBasic,VisualBasic says (when i De-Bug it) that its incorrect,then i try to fix almost every thing but still nothing!
Can someone help me on how to De-Compile a EXE File into a VB Project File...that works and thats the REAL code.maybe a program that does it?

A lot depends on how the application was compiled in the first place.

If it was compiled into P Code, which is a half way house between source code and machine code, then there is the possibility of restoring something like the original source code.

If the application was compiled into machine code, which was an option from VB5 onwards , then it is impossible to restore the original source code.

Have a look at the files the de-compiler generated, I would bet that they are in assembler which the best you are going to get from a machine code application.
