Loading VC++ 6.0 code into Visual Studio

Posted on 2012-09-12

Can I load a old Visual C++ 6.0 project (dll) into Visual Studio 2008?  If so, does it prompt me to convert? And If it converts, does it stay an unmanaged module?

    After conversion - yes.
    All the convert is doing is the format of the project/solution files.  It does nothing to the code.
