I'm sorry to say you've lost your work.

To prevent it happening in future you should go into Tools/Option menu. On the Envinment tab select "Prompt to Save Changes". This will promt you to save any changes you have made since the project was last run. So if vb crashes you are left with a recent saved version.

This is a good tip. It has personally saved me hours of rework!

I don't think there are ways recovering it. Maybe a time machine. Save before compile and execute.

Don't feel too bad, as i had 3 weeks of work done in a notebook that got stolen without source code backup.
