decompiler

We have a labview program that was written for us to control frame
grabbing form CCD cameras. The program is run standalone without the
Labview compiler present. The company that supplied us have lost their
programmers and also the source code. Apart from starting again from
scratch, has anyone got any ideas? Is there a decompiler available?

Sorry Mike,

basically your hosed - time to start reverse engineering -
Always demand source code when you subcontract out any programming work - I
always supply the source vi's to my clients, even when delivering compiled
programs as well. I mean what happens if I get hit by a truck (or a
hurricane - damn I sure hope Floyd turns north).

In short, no. The built executable almost certainly has no diagram code
attached to it. There is no decompiler for LV, and if there were, it
probably wouldn't be worth much. Decompilers tend to produce code that
can be recompiled, but is pretty much unreadable to people.

The company might have some printouts, some early versions of
the code, or they may have lost everything. They might want to
look at using a
source code control system for future projects.
