Hi,

I've written an Add-In for VS.NET 2003 in VB.NET.
Now, I need exactly the same functionality in VB6 so I'll have to write a new Add-In in VB6 which basically will implement the same functionality.

Is there a quick way of downgrading my .NET Add-In to VB6?

Thanks!

as far as i know, the best way is just copy the code,
and run with control+f5 to catch all errors one by one

(on large projects this can be much work)

There is no quick way of downgrading. Heck, the upgrading does not even work very well and leaves developer much more work to finish upgrading.
