Is there a long version? I might be able to search for the other files. An old developer created the .exe, it's been years since I did C++...so we probably have the source files.

See http://www.codeproject.com/cpp/Reversedisasm.asp for a full heads-up on the subject, and google PVDASM for the best utility to get you started - knowledge of assembly is pretty-much prerequisite.

Decompilers work on assumptions which are easily different from those that the original developer might have been working to - hence what you'll see is a representation of what the code actually does, rather than getting the original code...

I hope you manage to get what you're after,
