Methods that use the VB "on error" error handling style fail to decompile

Whenever using JustDecompile or JustAssembly to decompile or compare an exe with methods that use the "On Error" error handling syntax/style, those methods fail to decompile and instead display an error that has been reported several times.

I have tried to follow the source code to determine where the issue is, but I have had no luck doing so.
It is a rather large and intricate project after all. 🙂

Please add support for decompiling this syntax.

Thank you.

That is unfortunate because it is not just the error handling section that fails to decompile, every line of code in every method that uses that style will not decode.

If you have any suggestions or helpful information regarding the code that could assist me in doing that, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Mark,


Indeed at this very moment. JustDecompile is not compiling OnError syntax as expected. Marking the issue as an enhancement feature request but keep in mind that currently, the team doesn't plan to extend the functionality.
