Upgrading a VS6 MFC project to VS2008
Posted on 2008-10-17
I have a VS6 MFC project that i wrote some time ago.
I would like to upgrade it to VS2008 MFC to take advantage of the new visual effects.
When I open my old project in VS2008 I get a prompt to convert the project to the new version.
Afterward I convert it I can build the project but it looks old and ugly like it did before.
When i create a new VS2008 MFC dialog project and add a few GUI elements to the dialog and compile it. it has that new shinny look and feel. (the buttons are rounded, there is a gradient on the drop down boxes, ect)
How to I convert my old VS6 MFC project to VS2008 MFC and take advantage of the new visual effects?
