How can I migrate VB6 code to .NET using the built in Visual Studio Upgrade Wizard?
Posted on 2009-05-26
I'm wondering if there's some way to upgrade some old VB6 code that I didn't write to .NET using Visual Studio 2005's Upgrade Wizard? The problem arises when I try to do the conversion, I get this error:
Upgrade failed: Exception occurred: Could not load referenced components:
It is recommended you install VB6.0, with all referenced components, and ensure the application compiles and runs before upgrading.
So I did some googling and it seems that if I was able to install VB6.0, I would get these references and theoretically have no problem with the migration. Problem is, I don't have access to old VB6.0 IDE. Any suggestions?
