We are currently having a windows forms application coded in Visual Basic. We have used Visual Studio 2005 (running on Windows XP) for this project.
We plan to migrate to higher versions of Visual Studio (and Windows 7). Also, we plan to migrate from windows forms to web (make the system online).
What would be the best option for the following:
•      Migrate each window form (20 forms approx.)to web based system
•      What will be the best coding language – should we use C #?
•      Which version of VS should we use with Windows 7 so that we can easily migrate windows forms from Visual Studio 2005 to that version?

you can use  VS 2008 or 2010 or 2012 it is up to you

you may use c# or vb.net which one is more familiar to u

you can't migrate directly from windows application to web application

you need to code everything in web from scratch

Thanks so much, king2002.

We will adopt either c# or vb.net.

But in the interim, is there any easier option for making this windows application available online.

I also note that some error messages do come up when the same windows application generated in VS 2005 is opened in VS 2012.

Can these be overcome easily?

Thanks

when you open your project in vs 2012 it should ask you to convert the project
and in the end of the process it will show u all the errors that happen so u can refer to it
and try to fix it.

for web application i think u need to re program them :)
