If I get the VS Studio Edition 2015 does it have a decompiler? If not, do you have a suggestion for a free one? Thank you!

VS 2015 does not have a decompile. You can get dotPeek and it is free. Here is the link https://www.jetbrains.com/decompiler/

Yeah what a shame I do not use it often enough to warrant the cost. Just waiting on the other shoe to drop until JB starts charging for dotPeek.

I know it's not ideal but you can also use ILDASM (which comes with VS).  Reflector and dotPeek work by converting IL back into C#/VB.NET.

@Éric Moreau I am working for a client who wants me to build new things based upon existing compiled vb stuff... the person who originally wrote the vb stuff is long gone and I am writing new stuff with different technology but want to get assistance by looking at existing logic.
