Have never worked with VB6 previously, but have been asked to investigate how a particular VB6 exe application works ... Onsite there are no VB6 developers who I can refer to for assistance, so I'm seeking help here.

This VB6 application exe (say its called prjEmail) has been running fine for a few years, but nobody onsite knows where the original source files for the VB6 project are. By running SQL Server Profiler while the VB6 application is running, I've been able to build up a picture of what database calls are made by the application.

I've now found a folder which looks as though it may contain some of the source files for the VB6 project, but I need some help in working with those files.

The folder contains files with the following extensions :

       cls   frm   ini   bas   vbp  vbw

Can anyone please advise how I can look athe files in an IDE to see how they all fit together ?
