Ok, here is my big problem. I have a old VB3 project, that I saved a long time ago in binary format. Since then, I upgraded to VB5 but now -- oh surprise -- I have to work again on that project!
Nobody that I know has VB3 anymore, so I'm in deep trouble now!!!

If there is no way to convert VB3 binary source to VB5, then could someone who still has VB3, PLEASE convert my source code to VB3 text format???

And I repeat again   === I DO NOT HAVE VB3 ANYMORE! ===

THANKS in advance to the nice person who will help me   :o)

dufort,

  Download a VB3 discompiler to discompiler your VB3 application at http://www.apexsc.com/vb/ftp/misc/vbdis8.zip. And have a look at article: http://www.apexsc.com/vb/lib/lib8.html.

  You may not get all your code same as original code. The discompiler will generate meanless variable and constant. You need to modify to meaningful variable yourself.

  Regards.
