VB Decompiler is a decompiler for programs (EXE, DLL or OCX) written in Visual Basic 5.0 and 6.0 and disassembler for programs written on .NET technology. As you know, programs in Visual Basic can be compiled into interpreted p-code or into native code.
Since p-code consists of high-level commands, there is a real possibility to decompile it into the source code (of course, the names of variables and some functions will not be decompiled). VB Decompiler Lite restores source code from p-code as much as possible precisely.
And after some modifications you may try to compile generated code. If a program was compiled into the native code, restoring full source code from machine instructions is not possible. But VB Decompiler Lite can help to analyze the program even in this situation as well.
It contains a powerful disassembler and emulator. This powerful engine tries to decode most assembler instructions to most likely VB commands. Of course, it fails on some optimizations of assembler code and sometimes generate incorrect instructions. But at this time this is a best way to analyze native code applications.
If a program was compiled to .NET assembly, decompiler will recover all tables and modules in managed assembly and disassemble all methods, functions and events using IL disassembler. .NET FrameWork is not needed for decompilation.
In general, VB Decompiler Lite is an ideal tool for analyzing programs and it is perfect if you lose the source code and need to partially restore the project. VB Decompiler Lite is the ideal tool for programs analysis and recovering lost source code.
Here are some key features of "VB Decompiler ":
- Decompiling forms and usercontrols object files - P-code decompiling - Disassembling native code procedures - Syntax coloring in decompiled code - String reference list and search engine - Fast decompiling speed
Changes on the new version: - Fully Unicode support
- Additions in the Native Code
- Some bug fixes
