    i've saved a vb developed exe file from a friend. i contain a log in screen, whenever i click the login button after keying the username and password, i says "runtime error 429 ; active X component cant create object".

    -i have no VB software/program installed in my pc
    -the modules, forms etc files are gone; me and my friend only have the exe file

    is there any way i can fix this problem?

    please help!!! :( :(

    No, it seems that you dont have the Active X component you need, if your friend doesnt have this either, then you can do nothing anymore.

    i've installed M/soft Visual studio. i can now run the exe file.

    my question is can i use some program to see the codes, forms, modules etc of the exe file?

    Well, you can but it's better to re-write it if you want to change something.
    There are decompilers but they are not free and they aren't very usefull.

    Well, youd need the origional files, you cant "decode" it. Since all youd get after decoding is machine code.

    Not true.
    You can reverse VB code and objects (not all).
