Hi, everyone. This is my first post.
I'm just getting started, really. I took a computer science class this last semester and the professor's program of choice was Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. I enjoyed playing around with the codes, but I noticed that when making things for my own amusement or for practical purposes, the *.exe files only work on computers that already have visual studio. What's more is my free trial of visual studio is over in 2 weeks or so, and I don't have the extra money laying around to purchase my own copy.
Does anyone have any suggestions on some free decompilers and whatever else I'd need to create basic programs?
