Interesting question but I'm not sure you're going to get much help asking for a C++ decompiler in the VB Topic area ;-)

You can dissassemble the program into assembly language but if it was compiled without debug information then you won't have any symbols (i.e. variable and function names), everything will just resolve to a number.

As far as taking this assembly code and reverse engineering to C, it can be done but it will be a long drawn out and grueling task that could take many 100s of hours.
