How do I open an .EXE to view the source code. The program is in C lang.
C programs are compiled. That means that your code is translated into machine instructions. What you need is a decompiler, which will turn machine instructions back into C code; I don't know if there are any free ones though.
What type of decomplier do I need ?
I've also heard that once decompiled it can still be pretty cryptic. Variables, for instance, that are used in the source code, which are usually named for what they are (ex: intNumRecs, lngGrandTotal), don't get decompiled back to those names since when compiled they lose their names and become machine code.
But you should be able to figure out the logic going on in the program, presumably, and with a little luck/hairpulling!
Sorry tho, I don't know of any links to help you, but good luck!
I believe VC++ can dissamble a program, but not sure about decompiling.
Even then unless you know assembly that wouldn't do ya much good
