This task would be very difficult without a specialized decompiler like VBReFormer. You should note, though, that this particular tool is only meant for Visual Basic apps.
Clean interface with a well organized layout
Right from the get-go you will notice the practical GUI, with all its features and commands easily reachable from the main window. Most of the workspace is reserved to the code viewer and editor, but you can expand the component area or the debug information module as much as you need.
As soon as an executable is loaded, all the related details will be neatly presented in the left side pane, in a tree structure, with expandable elements, so each item can be analyzed up close.
Powerful search and library analysis features
The most valuable assets of VBReFormer are its ability retrieve the user interface code and the source as well, without any special configurations or requirements. The two views you can access, namely the Visual Basic code and the Project Editor will give you a comprehensive insight which includes all the methods and functions inside classes, forms, modules or controls.
There is a nice search engine that will assist you in quickly identifying objects you might want to examine closely. Another tool which is included in this software is a library finder that looks up the OCX, DLL, OLB and TLB files linked to the loaded program.
A basic disassembler with some useful extras
On the whole, VBReFormer does quite well the job it is supposed to carry out and will surely prove a real asset for those who want to recover the code of their Visual Basic applications.
