VB6 Conversion Help

Hi,

Converting a VB6 program and want to remove all the VB6 stuff even though the program works, anyone tell me if threre is a .NET equilivent to

Private Declare Function SetCursorPos Lib "user32" (ByVal x As Integer, ByVal y As Integer) As Integer
Private Declare Function GetDesktopWindow Lib "user32" () As Integer
Private Declare Function GetWindowDC Lib "user32" (ByVal hWnd As Integer) As Integer
Private Declare Function ReleaseDC Lib "user32" (ByVal hWnd As Integer, ByVal hdc As Integer) As Integer
Private Declare Function GetPixel Lib "gdi32" (ByVal hdc As Integer, ByVal x As Integer, ByVal y As Integer) As Integer
Private Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib "user32" (ByRef lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Integer
Private Declare Function GetExitCodeProcess Lib "kernel32" (ByVal hProcess As Integer, ByRef lpExitCode As Integer) As Integer
Private Declare Function GetCurrentProcess Lib "kernel32" () As Integer

Also there are references to

AxMSComctlLib
MsComctlLib
Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibality
stdole

all the rest are system. which look like .net references.

Can you see where a reference is used in code.

I think that shows me how to use them, I want to eliminate them by using .net framework classes if possible.

GetCursorPos - see Control.MousePosition Property

GetCurrentProcess property - see Process.GetCurrentProcess Method, Process.Handle Property
GetExitCodeProcess - see Process.ExitCode Property

I will try to find other functions also.

.net is "supposed" to be platform independent, so there are certain tasks that simply do not currently live in the .net world.   Most this is to do with window handling (eg GetDesktopWindow, EnumerateWindows).  For these you need to you platform interop.

You will probably find this link of use:
