Question
I have an .exe file that I am trying to get the source code for, ive decompiled the file and have a wonderful set of assembly language, is there any way the assembly can be converted into something readable like C++?

Answer
Hello Michael, thank you for the question.

I am unaware of any way to convert assembly back into C++. I'm not even sure if it's possible. If so, it definitely wouldn't be able to rename variables, which would completely destroy readability.

It's always possible there's a tool out there that does it, but I'm not aware of any.

I hope this information was helpful.
