Thanks for the suggestions so far. Let me add some details. I appreciate that you might be careful to make suggestions to me since I could just be trying to steal someone else's code. I'm not sure how to prove that I am the author of the code, but I can provide details about what would be inside the code should someone know how to help me. I could blindly send the executable so someone with this knowledge if they could help me.
I do have a real license for the tool and I did contact support but haven't heard back yet. Past activestate posts about this have not been answered, so I am not hopeful.
Usually I have better backups, but I was working on this code on the road and didn't have access to my regular subversion database. Plus it was not a huge project, about 10 hours of time that I grabbed between flights. The disk that was stolen was my backup. I actually damaged my computer notebook and had to install a new hard drive AND had the bag with my backup stolen. Anyway I feel pretty stupid about it since usually I am great for carefully backing up stuff.
Anyway, I am looking at this is PE Explorer a bit now that I understand how to use it better. Hopefully someone out there can give me the hint I need to save myself the effort of rewritting it.
