Retrieve C# code out of EXE Assembly

I lost some of my applications code coz of PC format, one of these applications is a C# Console Application, I managed to get the exe output of this application but I was not able to retrieve the code files so I used (.NET Reflector) to do this:


1-     Download the .NET Reflector.


2-     Download the Reflector.FileDisassembler.


3-     Extract the .Net Reflector


4-     Extract the Reflecter.FileDisaembler


5-     Copy the Reflector.FileDisassembler.dll to the .Net Relector Folder


6-     Start Relector.EXE


7-     From the View menu select Add-Ins



8-     In the Add-Ins Screen select Add and select Reflector.FileDisassembler.dll then close the Add-Ins screen



9-     From File menu select Open and select the exe file you want to retrieve its code



10- The reflector will load the file Assembly in the Assemblies section



11- Select the required file and from the Tools menu select File Disassembler




12- Click Generate and you will get your code




 Finally I would like to thank Siderite for his help

Could not load file or assembly ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0

When I deployed a web application to a windows 2003 server I got an error on this line of the web.config file

 <add assembly=ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a/> 

The error was


Could not load file or assembly ADODB, Version=7.0.3300.0



To solve this in VS2005:


          Create a setup project for the  web application


          Right click on the setup project and select Add/Assembly





           Select adodb component and click ok



          From the Solution Explorer select the adodb.dll and from the Properties click the small button in the Folder Field




           Select the folder bin from the Select Folder screen and click ok




          Compile your Setup project and use it to install your application
