vc.NET 2003 to vc.NET 2005 conversion

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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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
