Visual basic 2010

Microsoft offer free installation support with their products. I would recommend you contact Microsoft and have them assist you with any licensing installation issues.

I'm guessing this is Visual Basic 2010 Express which this link hopefully should get you to support.

The link does not help, they say that support is not availiable in my country. Wich is the US.

Make sure that no spaces are present before or after the key otherwise it won't work. :) You can also get free help from the Microsoft Software Development Network forums. Below is for the express editions setup.

Actually, I cant even open the program, it was a new install of windows, I installed it, it told me to reinstall VB and I did, same result. Any other Ideas? I will check there.

Also, Can you decompile a vb2010 program, because I lost the source code for one of them :( Is it possible?

Yep. Take a look at the Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 . It includes IL Disassembler and Windows Debugging Tools as well as additional tools like Microsoft FxCop.

I'm not sure if it can extract the source code directly, but with IL Disassembler you can identify object names such as buttons, labels, forms etc and strings. This can help in rebuilding the source code.

Darn. Any one else know something that you can directly view the code? that's free?

I'm pretty sure a tool like that doesn't exist free or paid. If it did we'd hear more about the black market and copyright issues. Another issue is that only the compiler that was used knows how to translate the source code into machine understandable language. You'll need advanced reverse engineering skills to reclaim the source code or hire someone with the skills.

Note: Reverse Engineering a product where the EULA prohibits it is against the law. Only do so if it is yours or you have permission from the author.

I only want to reverse engineer my own program. I know it's against the law to any program I have not created. I wont do that. My pc has it. It was on a flash drive, and the drive went through the washer, and I lost the code, but I still had the program on my pc.

If you don't think this conversation should go on, just dont reply. :)

That was just a warning for others.:) It requires advanced knowledge to extract the source code. A beginner or average user would probably not be able to do this.

I don't think that I'm just saying the source code is probably not going to be recovered unless you have expert programing knowledge and this probably is a lost cause. A suggestion would be to backup your projects regularly. Even if you don't have an external hard drive or a flash drive there's free storage sites like Adrive that you can backup to. :)

I want to create a exception handler/ Error provider, that displays a custom message box/exception box other than this one. Shown below.

Try using the "Try" and "End Try" keywords. Take a look at this it can explain it better then I can.:)
