VB6 Conversion

Hi
I have used Visual Studio 2005 to convert a VB6 app with reasonable results. I now have a larger project to convert.
Can someone advise as to the best version to use? For example is 2008 a better version for conversion?

Regards and merry Xmas
Bill

2008 is better than 2005. but forget 2010 because it doesn't contain the migration tool anymore

Will code from Visual Basic 6.0 work in Visual Basic 2008 Express?
Visual Basic 2008 Express includes a migration wizard that will help import existing Visual Basic 6.0 projects. You may need to make some manual adjustments to the code you port over, but the migration wizard is a good first step towards moving your code forward.
