How to use SoftICE to disassemble VB program.

0 Likes

Problem:

Is there any way to use SoftICE to investigate an application written in Visual Basic.

Resolution:

First of all, if the application is built as P-code (as against to native code), then all you can disassemble is the P-CODE engine.

If application is compiled as x386 object code, then you can see the disassebled code in SoftICE using 'U' command. If it is built with debug information, and if you load symbol table, you can see VB source.

However, note that many VB code end up as a function call to a service in VB runtime environment, and without source these functions can be difficult to spelunk.
