Althought this sounds extremely peculiar (not that I'm suggesting any illegal activities), what you need is a decompiler.

It should be noted that many applications have precautions in place against decompilers.

If you are MAKING a project, how could you not have the code?

If you are restoring an older package you wrote, would it not be easier to simply rewrite in in a newer version using more powerful features?

Making .exe out of a file does not destroy the source code, if the source code wasn't saved the the file can't be very long.

Didn't we just have a thread exactly the same as this one not one week ago is this very forum? In that topic, we concluded it was impossible in most cases.

Read this: http://www.dreaminco...wtopic94453.htm

Also, this is a relatively old topic, so in future, you can make your own topic, so these old ones stay where they should be.
