Unhappy Need Help. Lost my sources. EXE available

Hello Guys,

I know, you are very professionals on .Net. I having a big problem.
My USB Stick with my VB2008 project is broken . I have found an older version on a backup cd. But just the Exe file, and not the sources :-( . I tried out the Reflector to decompile it. But the source produced, i can't open in VB 2008 :-(

I uploaded the EXE files here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/42230535...tware_V0.2.exe
and here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/42230553...tware_V0.2.exe


Can anybody help me, to make a working project ?

Best regards,
Ponos

Since your EXE is not obfuscated in any way, use Reflector (http://www.red-gate.com/products/reflector/) or any other .NET decompiler. That's what any reverser would do.

Don't expect to get a fully working and compilable project but the decompiler will do ~90% of the job for you. The rest is up to you.

EXE not protected.I used Reflector. But it produce a horrible code.
It is a framework 3.5 file. Created with VB2008.

Is there any way to make a fully working project file?

As I said - any decompiler will do only ~90% of job for you. You can try different decompilers to see which works better for VB2008. But in any case you will have to do some work manually.

My suggestion : decompile the code. Start a new project in VB2008. Use VB GUI to do as much as possible (create forms, controls, etc.) and copy decompiled code into your new project only when necessary. It's slow and painful process but your application is not that big - in a day or two you'll be done.
