The loss of source codes is a very serious problem for many developers. Most Visual Basic 5.0/6.0 applications developed a very long time ago and sources (vbp, frm, bas files) already lost after changing PC, hard drives, etc. From experience of most customers, we can say that it is indeed a terrible misfortune. Imagine, you or your developer write the program, spend force, time and money, but now you have only compiled program (EXE file with DLL libraries), no more. Just one morning you see that all sources are gone (it may be after upgrading PC, changing cloud server, bad blocks on hdd. Who knows?) You are in panic. What should you do? Just take the VB Decompiler and simply decompile most parts of your project! VB Decompiler tries to recover it in the fullest extent possible and provide higher success rate than the similar tools.
Visual Basic has two different modes of compilation: P-Code and Native Code. VB Decompiler restores the source code from the P-Code (pseudo code) as close as possible to the original. So, after some modifications you may get really workable source code. If the program is compiled in assembler Native Code, of course, decompilation success rate will smaller than for P-Code but you can recover up to 70% of original sources. VB Decompiler has a built-in powerful x86/x64 disassembler, emulator for assembler commands and powerful tracing engine! It helps to decompile the binary code in extent possible to bring the assembly code to similar with Visual Basic code. Of course because of the diversity of modern methods of optimization and protection code, the process is not always ideal, but in this situation, VB Decompiler really helps you in the software analysis and reverse engineering.
If you develop your software in Visual Studio 2017 (or previous 2015/2013/...), using .NET Framework it's not a problem for VB Decompiler. It can easily restore the structure from the tables of the assembly, and will be useful for disassembly and analysis of IL code of Visual Basic .NET, C# and other .NET assemblies.
Our decompiler does not require .NET Framework. It works fine in any 32 and 64-bit Windows operating systems, Linux (with Wine) and does not require installing additional software.
As you can see VB Decompiler is an ideal tool for analyzing and restoring the source code. VB Decompiler is a "must-have" tool for VB-developers, who appreciate their work, time and money.
