ok got a project this morning for work which is a little out of my realm. I need to decompile a program that is like 5 years old and takes up a tiny 6.75MB. Can anyone recommend a decompiling program for the .exe and the .dll files associated with it.

ok this will be last ditch effort to bring this to the forefront since this is for work and I'm scrounging for ideas

uh, AFAIK you cannot convert an EXE back into its code. Once its compiled its compiled.

You can decompile a program unless it was intentionally encrypted during compile. You need a decompiler that matches the source code compiler.

I haven't used a decompiler in a decade though so have no idea where to look.

Also, there is that nasty little question of who owns the source code. $150k per instance of attempting to crack the compiled program courtesy of DMCA.

not it's not a copyrighted situation...they are working to update the program which they own in the first place...the only problem is that the people they paid to create it are really not around anymore and can't help them. they need to hire new engineers and make the program work with new technology...the only decompiler that I know of is IDA Pro but I am not into warez! and I don't have 399 dollars to buy the software. the demo version works really well but of course no save option !

by the way it's a portable execute file

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
