Is threre a tool in vc.NET 2005, or a third party tool, that converts vc.NET 2003 code to vc.NET 2005 code or do I have to rewrite my code to use handles instead of pointers and so on?

You can use /clr:oldsyntax to compile existing projects in VC++ 8.0.
AFAIK, there is no tool which converts Managed C++ code to C++/CLI.

Im thinking of upgrade since the new syntax looks a lot better so /clr:oldsyntax is no option.

Look at these links for the code changes that would be required for upgrading from VC7.1 to VC8.0

It's better to rewrite your code because the old C++ with managed code is obsolete now and will not be supported anymore in the future releases.
