You may have different programs with different extensions like DLL, EXE, OCX, written in the visual basic or .NET framework. This automatically means that these programs are compiled in above mentioned languages. A programmer may be interested in breaking this program in its original form and look for the programming algorithm of these programs. A visual basic program is also compiled in p-code which consists of many high-level commands. In this case, you need an application for accurately decompiling this program as far as possible into it’s source code for modifications in the program and recompilation. VB Decompiler v.8.2 is a valuable application for such purposes.
VB Decompiler by DotFix Software is a powerful decompiling tool for programs written in VB 5.0 and 6.0 languages and .NET technology. The program offers a user friendly interface with an objects tree on the left hand side window pane and thr relevant content of each object displayed in a display window in the center. You just have to select the required file in the program and hit the ‘Decompile’ button and this application will show the objects and source codes of the program. It features powerful and accurate disassembling and emulation capabilities even for programs written in native source code. Thus you can decompile and analyze such programs also. It may have some failures in assembler code optimizations and incorrect instruction generation but uses some of the most powerful algorithms for decompilation of programs. It also has an IL disassembler which can recover tables, modules, methods, functions and events from a program written in .NET framework.
Overall, VB Decompiler v.8.2 is a powerful and fairly accurate application for decompiling programs written in VB and .NET. Hence, it receives a score of four rating points on the scale of five.
