.frx file reference

In VB5 to set a reference to a binary file (eg. .frx file) as the value of a property you give the starting point in hex, eg.
Picture = "Myform.frx":02EB
Question:
In VB3 is the starting point reference also in hex and if NOT will converting the reference to hex enable the property to reference the correct starting point?
I'm trying to convert a VB3 project to VB5 and some of the graphics (that ofcourse are nowhere to be found now) won't load from the .frx file.  HELP!

It's a VB3/4 to VB5 project converter
You can download it at this address:

Don't know if this will work or not but I think I did something like this once.. open you're project in VB3 and a new project in VB5. Highlight the control in VB3 and hit CTRL-C then goto the VB5 form and hit CTRL-V. I think thats how I did it once. Just try to copy it from the old form and paste it into the new form.

Let me know if that works.

I need to do it programatically.

The file will not update automatically for you? I would have thought it would. Do you have a copy of VB4 anywhere handy? It should be able to read the VB3 design and convert it to VB4/16 bit. You should then be able to go to VB5 directly.

The procedure MS suggest is the following:

1) Open the VB3 project and save files in ASCII format
   (there's an option for this somewhere in VB3)

2) Open the saved prj in VB4/16 and save it
3) Open the saved prj in VB4/32 and save it
4) Open the prj in VB5 ... done !

but is a slow and ugly mode to do it, I've seen somewhere
a VB3 -> VB5 "batch" conversion program but at the moment
I can't remember the correct URL... sorry

Bye
