All depends on the language you used to create the file. There are decompilers out there for any language, but finding them for the specific language version can be a pain...

What's so special however?

As far as I know, there are no decompilers for versions of Visual Basic past 3.0.

Doubtful, if it's an EXE. EXEs are just binaries, and most languages can compile to binaries. Thus there's no way to tell what language it was originally written in, unless there's an About dialog that tells what language it's in.

For a decompiler, it'll decompile to assembly, so you'll have to learn that. Then you can convert all the assembly back to VB manually.

you said that you wrote the program, and then lost your files, and now want to work on it more; however you go on to ask how to figure out which language the program is written in. if you wrote it, you should know what langauge you used.
