For the record: we'd support the code if we were allowed to. However, "company B" legally prohibits us from providing the code they bought. They bought it, it's theirs. It's one thing for them to say "sorry, we can't answer any questions about this code." It's another to not distribute it from their website and to prohibit us from distributing it as well. And they know that by not supporting it, they make us look bad because it's our name on it not theirs.

Is this about the Visual Basic .NET Solutions book from 2002 in the thread title? If so, you might try contacting the author through his contact information on his blog:

If it's a different book, have you tried tracking down the author?
