I needed to de-compile an old .Net EXE that we didn't have the source code for (yes I know it should have been in the Source Control software, but a previous employee who was my boss didn't do this).
So I had the free version of .Net Reflector and noticed that you can get a extension to re-build a project and de-compile the EXE. Excellent but how
do you get it to work.
First if you do not have .Net Reflector then please find the free version, I am using version 6
Next download Reflector.FileDisassembler, remember to match the versions - I used this website to download http://www.denisbauer.com/Home/ReflectorFileDisassembler
Extract .Net Reflector to a directory
Extract Reflector.FileDisassembler to the same directory
Start Reflector (Run as Admin) and you see something like
From the View Menu - Select Add-Ins
Select Add and add the Reflector.FileDisassembler.dll
Close this form
On the main screen, File, Open and find the EXE you want to de-compile
Select the file on the Main screen
Then Tools - Select File Disassembler (ignoring the top
menu item disassemble)
A new screen will be displayed and this will let you build a new project.
