You are a bit of a hard marker chandu, by giving out grades like this you may find it hard to get an answer to your questions.

Last 10 Grades Given B B C C C C C B B B  


There are decompilers for VB but I have not seen one that works for versions greater than 4. Maybe someone else has.



Hi Chandua,
It must be very diffucut, some decomipler are available, but works only with vb 3.0 anyway just try this links

I would say you are out of luck.
You cannot decomplile a native code compiled executable.(5 and above), that is why you only see decompilers for earlier versions that reduced the code to an intermediate level (p-code)
And in any case, you would not get the original source code, all variable names etc, would be missing etc..not nice

Sorry bud

chandua, you should understand that here at Experts Exchange, you have the responsibility of bringing
a question to an excellent resolution.  Spend some time answering the experts questions and clarifying
your problem.  The experts have given their time in helping you, please show your appreciation by attending
to your open questions and not grading punitively.  

When you're grading an expert's answer it is important to remember that the grade you award to a question
is a token of appreciation, not a "school" grade.

For grading, in general, I would advise to give an "A" unless you have a good reason to grade less,
for example, if you asked for more information and you didn't get it, or the expert only gave you a
starting point and you still had to do most of the grunge work yourself.

A "C" grade is particularly unacceptable if the person simply posted their suggestion as a comment.
After all, you are not obliged to accept a comment as the answer.

Whatever the case may be, if you're considering giving a "B" or a "C", please tell the expert beforehand,
so that they have a chance to work on making their answer worth that "A".

Another thing you might want to consider is that a lot of our top experts check an asker's grading record.
If they see that an asker habitually grades questions with "B"s or even "C"s they would be very reluctant
to give their help.  With your current record, you will probably find it difficult to get good and timely
answers.
