Hi,

I want to Migrate Windows Form application written in Visual Studio C++ 6.0, using MFC to Visual Studio C++ 2008. I allowed the VS2008 upgrade the code automatically, but I still get the errors while build, specially with header files like fstream.h and iostream.h. Is there any reference guide or case study I can refer to, which will guide me with the steps to take to completely migrate the code, and issue I may face with the migration.

In Visual Studio 6.0 in an MFC project we didn't have any Windows Form.
It is really a legacy code and so you get a lot of warning and errors related to the C++ language and STL. You should fix all of them one by one.
On MSDN you can find Migration guides beginning from VS 6.0 (1998).

Visual Studio 2005 migration guide

But even if you will read all these guides VS6.0->VS 2003->VS2005->VS2008, you will not find a receipt for your case.

The suggested approach does not have much of automation involved. It seems then, that that may be the only approach out there, but I am not convinced.
