files

how can I change a exe file, that was once a C++ file back into its original code. Please email me back at wolfspac@aol.com. I would greatly appriciate it. (The problem was that I erased a source file for a c++ file called Demo.exe. Now I need to convert the exe file back into a readable source file. How do I do that?)

Well the bad news is you can't really.

Just as well for M$, or else we'd be all producing our own versions of Windows.

You can convert exe's into assembler using sourcer or another disassembler tool.  Then if you know assembly language well, you can usually figure out roughly what the C++ was.

I know this isn't the answer you want, but it's the truth.

However may I suggest you consider using UNDELETE or Norton utilities.  These tools can usually get back a file you've erased (provided you haven't done too much to your hard disk since then) as when a file is deleted from your HD the file is usually initially simply "marked as deleted" rather than actually being erased

Don't forget this will give you assembly language rather than C++.  It will be an uphill task to recreate the equivalent C++ from the assembly language version.
