I'm trying to find out a way to open any software i may download from the net and open it in Visual Studio 2005, to be able to view the source code, and forms etc... If anyone can help that would be great thanks
how to open a software's project code on Visiual Studio
Visual Studio 2005, is not for viewing the source code of the applications but its about creating the new application. If you open the application you will definitely able to see some binary data in the exe which will be of no help to you.
if you want to decompile the code you must know assembly language and google for decompilers.
