No, the last "converter" was in VS2008. But it was garbage anyway. The ONLY way to convert VB6 to .NET is a complete, from the ground up rewrite. Period. Don't believe any third-party converter claims. What very little can be converted leaves 90% of your code commented out for rewritting.

Unless you have a simple "Hello world" program, roll up your sleeves and start coding from scratch.

Oh, I see I didn't answer your question directly as asked. The answer is, "No, because the code won't fully pull up in the IDE".

Yeah, I'm in your same boat. I'm scheduled to take a week-long .NET class in June, so I can start rewriting my suite of 26 separate VB6 programs. Probably take me until I retire LOL...
