    Nope..
    technicaly impossible..

    look at it like turning bread into flour, water, sugar and yeast..


    And VB is the most f(_)cked up proprietary language out there..
    Why anyone would want to convert something as elegant as ASM to VB is beyond me..
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    if you are talking about "revert" and compiled program back to VB is one think...

    but i think you are just wondering about convert a assembly coded program into VB.

    Although i think its possible, there is some limitiations: some structures and instructions cant be well represented on VB. Also, there is tricks in assembly (as any other language) that a "converter" wouldnt understand.

    the_JinX:

    ASM, elegant? pffff.... in special if you are talking about IA-32 assembly. Its a crap. Worst machine language ive ever seen.

    ehhh thanks guys, it was for some challenge at school. we got a vb6 application and we needed to get some source out of it. w/o decompiling it (which i know is like well yea uber not cool)

    so our prof hinted that we should try to use a program like windasm or SmartCheck (which i cant even get my hands on a trail edition) to try to debug / disassemble.

    The thing is when i use windams it comes out in assembley or something ----- which when that happend my face went from this: (O_O) to this ( -______- ) because me and assembley arn't good friends.

    ahaha well now that you kinda know the scenario I'm in do any of you got suggestions?

    Thanks abunch for your input so far =D

    the_JinX, I agree completely. It's programming in its purest form....not weighed down with the verbosity of VB, yet articulate and powerful. For those who see programming as an art....assembly is beautiful.

    VB is a hammer, in the right hands you can build nice things. In most peoples hands, it makes things that look like the came out of a middle school shop class during the first semester.

    I have little use for assembly beyond optimization of code or the occasional tinkering.

    As far as decompiling VB code goes...I think a google search would probably benefit you more than asking here:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...sic+decompiler

    Taking it back to assembly and then to VB is....odd.

    =\ if there is one thing i made sure man - it was going to google first b4 here. forums is my last resort.

    its basically a homework assignment im not going put out 150 bucks for vbrezq or another 399 for vbreformer.

    I googled all night for something that may be of some help regarding smartcheck and stuff because again the prof hinted that it can be done using those items. (not really decompiling but more of debugging)

    I was hoping to come here to see if anyone has delt w/ those two items i mentioned in my previous post. that way they can point me to some sort of direction because after a whole night of googling i feel uberlost.

    again dont get this wrong, its not like im asking for you to do my assignment, just a little advice.

    thanks again for all your input =D
