I am fairly sure that you cannot get a decompiler for vb 5.  I think that there are a few programs around that will do this up to version 4 although this will only tell you what controls are in the program but it cannot give you the source code.

I hope this helps...

Hi
SirNick is absolutely right. The reason for this is that VB progs up to version 4 were completely interpreted progs (interpreted by the runtime DLLs). VB 5 and VB6 are more like "real" programs, with many "real" x86 code and only few calls to the MSVBVMXX.DLL in order to do things.

i would love to see a decompiler that actually works on all version of VB and works (underlined).

You've probably tried them all, and found that none work. I've came to believe that there are none.

:P
