hi,
its not possible.you can pretty much get the dfm and procedures back but thats it.
ie

procedure tform1.button1click(blah)
begin
//nothing
end;

so its not really worth doing..

find a decompiler..
note,
if its not for your software use its usually illegal.

and as i said its not worth it,all it can show you is the same as starting the exe as normal and starting a new prject and coping the events that exist in the exe..
