ya well the code doesnt run...ok anyways can you help me with this

I have been converting a file into its hex value.But cannot convert it back into same exe value

Let me get in detail

Here is the code

Imports System.IO
Sub Main()


        Dim fileName As String = "ABC.exe"


        Dim data As Byte() = File.ReadAllBytes(fileName)


        Dim fs As FileStream = File.OpenWrite(fileName & ".txt")

        Dim sw As StreamWriter = New StreamWriter(fs)


        Dim pos As Integer = 0

        Dim line As Integer = 0


        While pos < data.Length

            sw.Write(String.Format("{0}:", line.ToString("0000")))


            For i As Integer = 1 To 20

                sw.Write(String.Format(" {0:x2}", data(pos)))

                pos += 1

                If pos = data.Length Then

                    Exit For

                End If




            line += 1

        End While





    End Sub

Now,When i call the main method an text file called ABC.exe.txt is generated.

First of all instead of ABC.exe.txt can we have ABC.txt only

and secondly can how can i convert this hex values back to exe.. at least compile it in vb or any other language

Thank you for your time
