Hello kunal,

 

no that is not possible. I someone creates an exe, you can't recreate a vi out of it.
One of the reasons is to save the programmer's code from being copied.
It is also not possible recompiling C-Code and similar, for your information.

 

Regards

That's usually impossible.

However if the .exe was built with the block diagrams embedded (which is not the default), then it is possible to extract the VIs from a .exe.

I don't remember.  Try my old VI extractor.  I wrote it in LV 10.  Probably still works.

Its not possible,

See the example,

 

In the exe if you have output 9 then it can be from 0+9,1+8,2+7,3+6,4+5. Then finding which is input is tough job.

Why do you want to do this?

If it was created with an older version, typically all you could do was get a list of VIs. The exe was basically an llb. You could rename it and open it with LabVIEW. You could not see the block diagrams because they were almost always removed by the creator of the exe. I would recommend you give up trying.
