Thread: Lost project and module files

    Lost project and module files


    I only have my executable files on a program I created. The disk that I had
    the work on became corrupt and have had no luck in retrieving any of the
    files even with recovery programs. Is there any way I can get the code pulled
    from the executable file with a utility or something? I have no need to worry
    about the forms nor any properties of the form, just need the code I wrote.

    Thank you

    LS

    Very painful lesson that we have ALL learned, the "HARD" way - Back-up everything!!!!

    I even make print-outs of my form files (.frm) once I "finish" setting the interface and
    of code at "significant" milestones during development. Then most of my interface (minus
    the graphical stuff housed in the .frx files) and all of the code could be restored via an
    OCR program. This is just one more level of protection that I feel comfortable with. I
    haven't had to make use of this hard-copy backup yet, but it's there if I need it.
