I am interested in deconstructing an exe that was likely rendered in VB6 (before I got here) for which the original code has been lost.  I am basically looking for a quick, cheap app that will either decompile the exe or offer detailed insight into the who/what/where and when of its processing.

As far as decompiling is concerned there are none for 32-bit VB.  There were some I believe for the 16-bit version.

there are disassemblers out there that will output the ASM but this is probably not useful to you. True decompilers to render the original VB6 code (to my knowledge) doesnt exist

Delete this question, because your never going to get an answer you like.  There is no decompiler for VB above version 4.
