Somehow I have managed to lose (without backup, I know, I know, I know) the frm file in a VB 6 project. The frx file (binary of the form?) is still there. Is it possible to recover the frm from the frx???

HELP!!!

The *.frx basically contains control information for images/etc. It most-likely will not have your procedures or anything worth-while. If you deleted it by accident, check recycle bin or use an undelete program to recover it (go to downloads.com and search for "undelete").

Also- if you don't mind- I do have a compiled version of the app, can that be reversed by any chance??

Well, I take it you're using VB6. Decompilers existed for previous versions (such as VB3(dodi)) which could decompile the executable closely to the original state of the source. This was due to "pseudo code" (pcode) compilation. Now, VB6 has "pcode" but it's not like the previous so there's no way to do what you want.
