Port VB2 Application to VB6

acftest asked
Is there any tool available tto port a VB2 application to VB6 application?
And how 16bit controls are to be converted in 32bit controls?

Watch Question

you need to do it via VB4 - it had 16 & 32 bit versions.

Open in vb4 16 bit, then save it to update the fie formats, then open it in vb4 32 bit to convert it.  It should convert all of the standard controls - any 3rd party ones and you may be out of luck.

You would have to amend any API calls yourself.

vb6 could then open the converted vb4 project
