VB .exe

Does anyone know if there is anyway to see the source code of an .exe...I've been given a few .exe at my job and they asked me to fix them up and put new features on them.. I was just wondering if I could save myself alot of time and just get the code.

you are looking for a decompiler... unfortunately (or fortunately for some ;)) for vb, there are no decompilers for versions past 3 (as far as i know).

not from the exe file itself. You have to have the source code (.bas .cls .frm) files. If not, unless you know assembly and hex you can't get the code.
