Is it possible to take an existing Windows Forms project written in VS2008 and convert it to a WPF project? I would like to take a project that I wrote in VS2008 and open it in VS2010 and change the look of the forms and buttons, etc. Is this possible? Basically I would like to make my existing program look nicer, newer, etc.

I know nothing about WPF and haven't used it at all yet.

Nice Eric, but I would pay attention to how closely the migration adheres to WPF best practices, like resources, or if it just does simple conversion like it says, "Basic Windows Forms controls".
