    Dear friends

    I would like to open the code inside the .xbe with my debyg and VC C++ 2003 but I don't know how? I read the xbox documentation but I don't find (my english can help).

    Could you explain me please?


    Thank you

    First of all, .xbe is like an EXE for windows. its compiled. so if you dont have any sourcecode of it, no much debugging.
    If its your xbe file: compile it with debugging on, and connected to your xbox. :p

    If its not your XBE, or are a dev-noob (like me 12 years back):
    You can try Cxbx or like emulators and IDA for decompiling the XBE for more info. But 1 to 1 sourcecode like the original is (almost) Inposibru.

    Story short, Not posible. But google "Decompiling" and or "Reverse Engineering"
