Hi mutetourettes, I was curious about this as well. I was able to get the original VSWE .exe working but it took a bit of work. I too was wondering if the source code was still available and if it would make sense to just re-code it in something more modern like Java or Python or... (anything but VB6!). Not sure if there are strict dependencies on VB6 or not, but seems like there shouldn't be. Has anyone thought of doing this yet?
If not, I am a Java programmer and would be happy to take a crack at it. Perhaps I could get a Github setup and anyone else able to work on it can do so. But I agree getting something more modern out there that does not trigger anti-virus alerts and has dependencies on a decade-old .dll file no longer packaged with Windows would be a great idea!
