  • Hello,

    The .xap-File is a .zip-File, you can  change the XAP file's .xap extension to .zip and unzip it.  However, the xap file does not have source code, it contains executables. after renaming it to .zip, you can view the contents.  You could then use a class browser and analysis tool to investigate the executables.

    Hope this helps, thanks.
