Hello fsze88,

VS 2008 includes its own converter, however because there are many differences between the two versions there is no 100% automatic method to achieve a perfect conversion. If you use the built-in conversion mechanism you will still need to rework your converted code to be fully compliant (initially perhaps using legacy methods and then work towards a full .net implementation of your application.

Unfortunately this is about as good as it gets, there is no "quick-fix" solution out there that can achieve a 100% perfect automatic conversion. You are better off spending the time working on your application to bring it up to the .Net level that looking for something that doesn't exist.

Regards,

If you are going to go down the migration route, be prepared for a lot of work fixing what the migration wizard does, and also be prepared for things not to work the same.  I am one of those that feels that migration is a messy proposition from VB6 to VB.NET, and it is better to reengineer in this case, since you will probably spend months trying to get everything just right.
