    Easy way to decompile EXE to C-Sharp and then compile

    How can I easyly decompile EXE to C-Sharp (or other langage) and then compile it without errors ?

    I tried using some free tools to decompile EXE (or DLL) and indeed get the source codes, however, many variables were anonymous and compiling gave lots of errors I cant fix. Is there a way to decompile EXE and something that fix the source code automatically and allow me to compile it straight a way without a hassel ?

    Why would you want to "decompile" a program, just to turn around and recompile it. Sorry, but that makes no sense.

    As for an answer to your question, I doubt it very much. It's a miracle you can decompile at all and get something that remotely looks like real code.

    You could, however, easily disassemble it, and then assemble it again. Why you'd want to do that though...

    I want to decompile, change something and then compile. I didn't mean obviously decompile and compile exactly the same code. What are the tools and options doing it without spending days fixing the decompile source code to be able to compiled again ?

    Priceless. You/me/us can't easily even SEE code, and their are means to protect it against conventional means.

    Have you looked at .net reflector?

    Whats the sense behind? Most programs forbid decompiling by copyright laws and to do so normally is treated as fraud and is not covered by any reason to do so.

    So, you do not have the source code? If you are trying to hack another's program, then thats against copyright laws and possibly you cant get legal help here. .NET reflector will let you see the logic but I doubt the entire code. You need to have the source code to change it !!!!
