Thinking of upgrading a sizable vb 6.0 application to VB.net
Posted on 2005-05-12
I've been asked to look into the possibility of upgrading a large vb 6.0 application to vb.net.
My brother would prefer it to be accessible from the internet rather than installing it as a client app on every client's PC.
The system is installed on client PCs and they can connect to a SQL server 2000 ( which is on a Windows 2003 server) remotely or via a LAN.
Can you give me some serious pointers as to how I would proceed.
Especially with regards to migating the vb 6.0 code, forms, module etc ( if possible) and what security aspects and server consideration I would have to consider.
Would this require a complete re-code ?
This would be a serious move and I need some expert advice
